Nick DiPasquale, recently retired as director of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Chesapeake Bay Program, couldn’t stay away from saving the Bay.

ShoreRivers, the riverkeeper organization for Maryland’s mid-Eastern Shore, announced it has hired DiPasquale as policy advisor. He will work on ShoreRivers’ behalf to push for cleaner Eastern Shore waterways at the state and regional level.

“We are delighted to have Nick joining ShoreRivers as a policy adviser,” says Jeff Horstman, executive director of ShoreRivers. “He has enormous experience and expertise in Chesapeake restoration issues and will add great value, strengthening our analysis and voice.”

DiPasquale says he is thrilled with his new job. He retired in December 2017, after serving as Chesapeake Bay Program director for more than six years. The program is responsible for overseeing the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement and ensuring the six Bay states and Washington, D.C. meet their pollution load reduction targets.

DiPasquale has worked in public policy and environmental management, both public and private, for more than 35 years.

He lives in Chestertown, Maryland, with his wife Becky and their two dogs.
