By Sabri Ben-Achour

The District of Columbia has a new director at it's Department of the Environment. Mayor Adrian Fenty named Christopher Tulou to head the department.

"Director Tulou - huge experience in the environmental field, he's actually served as a cabinet member in another state in the same capacity, worked on the hill, lawyer...," says Fenty.

Tulou headed Delaware's Department of the Environment and Natural Resources in the 90's, and directed the Pew Oceans Commission before founding a marine conservation group and a consulting firm.

The Department of the Environment has been run by several interim directors since the previous director, George Hawkins, left to head the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority.

Tulou will have a full plate before him, from implementing new federally mandated regulations on stormwater to shoring up the District's renewable energy program.
