Dr. Grevatt has over 30 years of experience leading the implementation of public health and environmental protection programs including significant national leadership experience in the water sector. Most recently, he served as Director of EPA’s Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water (OGWDW) where he was responsible for ensuring the safety of the nation’s drinking water supply through the development and implementation of national drinking water standards, oversight and funding of state drinking water programs, and the implementation of source water protection and underground injection control programs.

Prior to joining OGWDW in 2012, Dr. Grevatt served as Director of the Office of Children’s Health Protection and as Senior Advisor to EPA’s Administrator for Children’s Environmental Health. In addition, Dr. Grevatt has held leadership roles in EPA’s national hazardous waste and water quality programs.
