Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations & Environment

Keith Eastin was sworn in as the Assistant Secretary of The Army for Installations and Environment on August 2, 2005. He has been engaged in the practice of environmental law and consulting for more than thirty years and has managed environmental projects and operations as a corporate officer, a high-level federal governmental official and a director of significant environmental practices of two Big-Four professional services firms. Most recently he served in the Department of State as Senior Consultant to the Iraq Ministry of Environment, as well as serving in a similar relationship with the Amanat Baghdad and its public works functions. In addition to his work with the Department of State, his federal service includes Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy where he supervised its real property and environmental matters and military construction for its installations worldwide. He also served as the Deputy Under Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior and its chief environmental counsel. In that role he organized and directed a team that conceived of and drafted the regulations providing for the Assessment of Damages to Natural Resources under Superfund and other acts. As a consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers and earlier with Deloitte & Touche, his work included activities at significant hazardous waste and Superfund sites nationwide. He advised clients on environmental disputes and controversies involving governmental agencies and enforcement bodies and was Project Director at a large Nuclear Regulatory Commission-regulated uranium contamination site’s cleanup and closure. Mr. Eastin served in a key consulting role in the landmark state/industry cooperative natural resource damage assessment for the PCB contamination of a major Midwest river. Additionally, he has valued the entire non-income producing natural resource inventory of a Northwest state in connection with the development of its Asset Stewardship Plan, assessed damages for the contamination of a major aquifer by a 2.5 million-gallon petroleum spill in Nevada, and later assessed damages from activities associated with the Department of Energy’s activities at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. As a practicing attorney, he was a partner in a large national law firm and managed the firm’s environmental group in Washington, was general counsel to two public companies, and worked with the American Arbitration Association where he mediated or arbitrated dozens of environmental and construction disputes. He holds an AB and MBA from the University of Cincinnati and a JD from the University of Chicago.
