MADISON - In an effort to further support state efforts to protect public health and water quality through increased compliance with agricultural runoff requirements, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has hired two new environmental enforcement staff.

Paul O'Neel will be stationed in the DNR Northeast Regional Headquarters in Green Bay working on environmental enforcement issues for that part of the state. O'Neel earned his Bachelors of Science degree at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in Wildlife Ecology and his experience includes working for Alaska's Department of Environmental Conservation and for the DNR's Parks Program.

Sadie Derouin will be stationed in the DNR's Southcentral Regional Headquarters in Fitchburg. She fills an existing vacancy in environmental enforcement and has already been working in the DNR's Bureau of Law Enforcement as a training coordinator. Derouin's undergraduate and graduate degrees focused on science communication and building sustainable businesses and communities.
