Keith Salador Named Executive Director Of DEP Citizens Advisory Council

Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Patrick McDonnell Tuesday announced the appointment of Keith Salador to the position of Executive Director of DEP Citizens Advisory Council.
“Keith has provided outstanding legal counseling to DEP for the past four years,” said McDonnell. “His broad experience within DEP and his extensive knowledge of environmental law will serve the Council very well as they explore big-picture issue areas affecting the commonwealth.”
Salador has served as an attorney in DEP’s Bureau of Regulatory Counsel since 2014, where he advised DEP staff in the Environmental Cleanup and Brownfields, Radiation Protection, Storage Tanks, Clean Water, Compacts and Commissions, and Oil and Gas programs.
He was involved in a broad range of agency activities that included the drafting of regulations, enforcement actions, litigation, and major policy decisions.
As Executive Director, Salador will coordinate the council’s research and reviews related to environmental protection, conservation, and resource management issues and its recommendations regarding policies, procedures, plans, and goals for protecting the environment and natural resources in Pennsylvania.
Before his career at DEP, Salador was an Assistant Regulatory Manager at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia.
He also served as a Law Fellow with the Center for International Environmental Law and a Law Clerk for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, both in Washington, D.C.
He earned his law degree from Widener University School of Law in Delaware, where he served on the school’s Law Review, and a Master of Studies in Environmental Law from the George Washington University School of Law in Washington, D.C.
The Citizens Advisory Council was legislatively created in 1970 by Act 275, which also established the Department of Environmental Resources, the predecessor to DEP. The Council made up of 18 citizen volunteers appointed by the governor, president pro tempore of the state Senate, and Speaker of the House.
Don Welsh serves as Chair of the Council.
The next meeting of the Council is on September 18 in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson Building starting at 10:00.
