Abstract: Since the Reagan administration took over the Environmental Protection Agency in 1981, there have been few decisions that have not stirred controversy. In this interview, Deputy Administrator John Hernandez, a Reagan appointee and second-in-command under Anne Gorsuch, discusses the regulatory changes he has helped make at EPA. Topics include: the reform of the Construction Grants program; the nation's progress toward meeting its clean water goals; water quality standards and public health; and the Administration's proposed legislative changes to the Clean Water Act.
