Fenty taps Tulou to be D.C. environmental director

Christophe Tulou, a former Delaware cabinet secretary overseeing environmental issues, has been tapped by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty to be the city's new director of the Department of Environment.

Fenty (D) is expected to unveil Tulou at a Thursday news conference at the Aquatic Resources Education Center at Anacostia Park. Tulou, who heads a consulting firm, has had an extensive career in environmental work, including a stint as executive director of the Pew Oceans Commission.

George S. Hawkins left the city post last October to serve as general manager of the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority. Maureen R. McGowan, who had been a special assistant to Hawkins, served as interim director until she left in February to work at WASA. Keith A. Anderson, former deputy director of the department's energy administration, was the most recent interim director.
