Meet Chris Egger

Environmental Analysis & Review Specialist

In October 2013, Chris Egger joined the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s (WisDOT) Bureau of Aeronautics (BOA) as an environmental analysis and review specialist.  Chris is responsible for ensuring compliance with state and/or federal environmental laws regarding Wisconsin state funded airport projects. In addition, he serves as a resource for airports with wildlife hazards.

Chris’ duties include coordination with applicable regulatory agencies on a variety of environmental issues, including the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. He is also responsible for completing the associated environmental documentation required for Wisconsin airport projects that utilize state or federal funding.

Chris serves as an internal resource to BOA staff for other environmental concerns as well. His interests include erosion control and stormwater management, and he looks forward to helping ensure the quality of stormwater runoff from airport construction projects.

Chris earned a bachelor’s degree in geography in 2010 from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. Before joining WisDOT, he was an environmental scientist with Kennedy/Jenks Consultants and primarily worked on environmental compliance and remediation projects in the Duluth, Minnesota area.

Chris is originally from Oregon, Wisconsin.  He enjoys spending time outdoors, whether it is hunting/fishing or just camping and sitting by a bonfire. He also enjoys going to the movies, watching football (Go Packers!), and spending time with friends and family.

For any questions concerning environmental issues at the Bureau of Aeronautics, please feel free to contact Chris at or (608) 266-2934.
