Information from Iowa DNR

MASON CITY – The Mason City Department of Natural Resources Field Office #2 announced two retirements this week.

Jeff Vansteenburg, Supervisor, and Glenn Carper, Senior Environmental Specialist, will both be retiring effective June 28th. They both started with the department when it was called the Iowa Department of Water, Air, and Waste Management (IDWAWM).

Jeff started as a limnologist with the State Hygienic Lab in 1981, and moved to DNR in the Mason City office as an environmental specialist in 1985. He’s spent much of his career in the water quality area, specifically in drinking water. In 2004, he was promoted from senior environmental specialist to the field office supervisor. In retirement, Jeff and Heidi will move to the family’s lake home in Minnesota, and plan on engaging in a lot of outdoor activity and seeing their daughters more frequently.

Glenn started with the department in 1983 as an environmental specialist. He’s worked in every program area, including drinking water. Glenn and Nancy will be adding the ISU away games to their activity roster, and plan to travel to the National Parks in their mini-travel trailer. They’ll also be spending more time with their four grandchildren.

      I hear the whining sound of jealousy. Two positions open with the DNR, but you’re satisfied with your dead end job dishing out fast food. It’s your future, do something about it, and stop whining. .

      You sound a tad better and your life probably sucks. Get off your ass and make something of it and quit bitching

    Hell of a career – 750 polluted waterways in Iowa and pig farms and fertilizer polluting more every day so we can send pork to China. Never had the DNR solve any problem for me in 40 years – mostly the DNR is corporate controlled and these people are just pawns. PS – hopefully these people were an excecption to the fact.
