Wisconsin Names New Point Person for Frac Sand The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources named Deb Dix as its new lead on industrial or frac sand issues. Dix will serve as the initial point of contact on frac sand for public, pri‐ vate, legislative and media inquiries on the DNR's regulatory authorities and interaction with the industrial sand sector. She will be based in the DNR's Wisconsin Rapids office and is serving on an interim basis while the department moves forward with fill‐ ing the position. Dix takes over for Tom Woletz, who retired in June. "I have worked with Deb Dix for over 20 years and I believe she is a great fit for this appointment," said Woletz. "She has worked in many of the de‐ partment's environmental programs and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this assignment, includ‐ ing working directly in the nonmetal‐ lic mining reclamation program. She will do a great job." Dix most recently worked with the Environmental Enforcement Program. Her duties included specific frac sand enforcement actions as well as help‐ ing coordinate DNR programs related to regulatory oversight of the indus‐ try. Last year, Dix became the agency's environmental enforcement liaison associated with run‐off and mining is‐ sues. In her new interim role, she will have no involvement in enforcement. She has also worked on the Nonmetal‐ lic Mining Reclamation program in west central Wisconsin, where she as‐ sisted with outreach to municipalities GILS GILSON SON and the industry to explain the re‐ quirements of the program, helping municipalities with ordinance devel‐ opment and approval and assisting the mining industry to understand the changes.
