President Obama announced on 2 April 2009 his intent to nominate Anne Castle to the post of Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Water and Science. Castle has more than 25 years of experience in water rights, water quality and natural resources law. She is currently a partner in the Denver, Colorado office of Holland and Hart LLP, where she practices water rights and water quality law. According to Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Castle “will be an invaluable addition to our team as we work to address the water challenges facing our country and as we restore the role of science in decision-making at the Department of the Interior.” The Bureau of Reclamation and the United States Geological Survey are housed within the Office of Water and Science.
