Programa del Estuario de la Bahía de San Juan / Meeting with US-EPA Region 2 Administrator

Executive Director, Brenda Torres, met with the new US-EPA Region 2 Administrator, Hon. Pete Lopez. He was taken on a scouting trip to the waters of the estuary to be able to assess the damage. His receptiveness towards the needs of environmental justice communities throughout the Island was a clear sign of hope for us, all.
