After nearly 27 years, the Remediation and Redevelopment Program says goodbye to its SCR Team Supervisor, Linda Hanefeld. Linda began her career as an LTE in 1981 in Fitchburg (now the SCR office and then called the Southern District) in the Wastewater Landspreading Program. In 1984, Linda again held an LTE position in the Fitchburg office in the Solid and Hazardous Waste Program, completing preliminary site assessments for the Superfund program.
Linda was hired permanently in 1990 in the Wisconsin Rapids office, first as a Landspreading Specialist and Laboratory Certification Inspector, then for about 9 months in the Solid and Hazardous Waste program working on petroleum tank clean-up sites. In September of 1991, Linda transferred to the regional office in SCR as a Solid and Hazardous Waste Inspector for Dane County.
In 1999, Linda transferred to the RR Program as a Hydrogeologist in the Dodgeville office for nearly 6 years, then transferred to SCR. Linda served on the program’s Land Recycling team, using her excellent customer service and communication skills to help promote the redevelopment of brownfields properties. She was promoted to RR Team Supervisor in October 2010. Linda wishes her co-workers well and plans to immediately sleep late and vacation.
Linda’s last day with the DNR will be February 3, 2017.
