Jack Faulk
Team Leader, Water Permits Division at US EPA


Jack Faulk is an environmental protection specialist in the Vessels Permitting Program at the US Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, DC.  Mr. Faulk has worked in the wastewater permitting field for more than 30 years, with the first half of his career in the private sector working for Science Applications International Corporation in Virginia and the second half working for EPA. 

In his current role, Jack is the lead staff for implementing the Agency’s Vessels General Permit…and likely the lead staff in developing the next version of that permit.  Jack also led the development and operation of the current VGP eNOI system which provides a means for the electronic submission of vessel information to EPA.
