Current certification requirements are appropriate

I believe that reducing the certification requirements for CPWDs would negatively impact the quality of wetland delineations leading to inferior wetland permits, compensatory mitigation, and site development in the Commonwealth. The current certification requirements are the appropriate level of effort to assure reliable and consistent identification of wetland and waters. Any reduction in requirements would be an injustice.
