Description of Fellowship
Keith worked at the New England office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. While there, he assisted with implementing the Regional Beach Strategy that focuses on collaboration with priority communities experiencing chronic beach closures due to poor water quality. In support of this, he developed Beach Action Plans for communities in the Greater Boston and Massachusetts Bay region. These Action Plans outline a strategy that builds and facilitates a consensus approach among local, state, and federal agencies to improve water quality at local beaches and protect human health.
