The Environmental Protection Agency recently announced the theme for its 50th anniversary, which it will be celebrating at the end of this year.

“EPA at 50: Progress for a Stronger Future” will reportedly be commemorated throughout the year and end in a celebration on Dec. 2.

“For 50 years, EPA employees and our many partners have worked together to fulfill the agency’s mission to protect human health and the environment,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.

“Today, Americans enjoy cleaner land, air and water than ever before. I look forward to celebrating the agency’s accomplishments throughout the year, and I hope that we can inspire the next generation of environmental leaders to continue building on our progress for the next 50 years.”

The EPA was established on Dec. 2, 1970, to create one agency responsible for federal environmental responsibilities that include research, monitoring, standard setting and enforcement activities “to ensure environmental protection while simultaneously safeguarding human health.”

“Since 1970, EPA has made significant progress in protecting the nation’s water, cleaning up our air and land and safeguarding human health,” the agency said.

“Historic milestones include setting the nation’s air quality standards to protect human health, regulating the quality of public drinking water, creating the Superfund program to clean up hazardous waste sites and protecting children from exposure to lead-based paint, to name a few.”
