ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - An assistant forest engineer from Douglas County has received national recognition for estimating the cost of removing asbestos from all U.S. Forest Service facilities across the nation.

The News-Review reports (http://bit.ly/1rC2XJn ) that John Beagle with the Umpqua National Forest has been named the Technology Application Person of the Year for 2015. He was recognized at a national engineering conference at the U.S. Forest Service headquarters in Washington, D.C. last month.

Beagle, of Roseburg, has developed a method for estimating the cost of asbestos removal that allows the work to be calculated at the federal level instead of field offices having to do it individually.

Beagle earned a degree in civil engineering at Oregon State University and joined the Forest Service in 2008.
