Delawarean Wins Prestigious EPA Award for Protecting Wetlands

July 26, 2011
Stefania Shamet is recognized for her superior work in wetlands protection

Stefania Shamet, a resident of Marlton, N.J., and attorney for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), received the Edward T. “Red” Heinen Wetlands Award, EPA’s most prestigious national award recognizing superior work to protect wetlands. Shamet, the daughter of John and Stefania Daliani of Dover, Del., is a 1982 graduate of Holy Cross High School.

The award is named after a highly respected leader from the formative years of EPA’s wetlands program. It is presented annually to the person from EPA’s nationwide wetlands program who best exemplifies the high standards and personal dedication to wetlands protection that characterized Red’s years with EPA's wetlands program.

It acknowledges those special people who are a source of inspiration to others in the program, and whose work and attitude best contributes to our environmental and public service goals.

During her 14-year tenure at EPA, she has provided counseling and enforcement representation for the region's water pollution control program, including the Clean Water Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.

A graduate of Georgetown University College and the University of Virginia School of Law, Shamet came to EPA after four years as an associate at Steptoe & Johnson LLP in Washington, D.C., and two years as a staff attorney at the U.S. Court of Appeals in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
