Great Federal Employees Initiative

Honoree for Week of September 21, 2009

Allan Comp

Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining

Allan Comp won the 2009 Service to America Environment Medal for his work at the Department of the Interior’s Office of Surface Mining. He created the Appalachian Coal Country Watershed Team, a partnership between his office and VISTA volunteers who help local citizens and community groups organize clean-up projects and monitor water quality. His program was so successful that it was recently expanded to the American West. Today, joint Office of Surface-Mining and VISTA teams are at work protecting and empowering local communities in Colorado, New Mexico, and Montana.
