A team of Corps employees working on EPA’s Brown and Bryant Superfund Project recently won a Superfund award for Virtual Teams. Accepting the award for the team was Rick Lainhart from the Los Angeles District, Cecilia Horner (middle) and Carol Wies-Brewer, both from the Albuquerque District.

The award’s citation explained that the Project Delivery Team dramatically advanced a challenging California Superfund Project last year. Despite EPA project manager leadership changes and a Supreme Court hearing, the team moved the 22-year-old cleanup issue to remedial action using innovative value engineering.

Other team members are: Travis Cain and Brunilda Davila (both EPA), Steven Wagner (SPA), Daniel McMindes (SPD), Michael Bailey, David Becker, Charles Coyle (all from USACE Environmental and Munitions Center of Expertise), Thad Fukushige and Richard Lainhart (both SPL).
