Concern over suggested changes

After reading over the suggested changes to the VA Professional Wetland Delineator (PWD) certification program, I have some concerns.  My biggest concerns are the proposed education and experience requirement changes and removing the requirement that one reference be a certified PWD.  I would hate to see these proposed changes adopted because it would result in watering-down the expertise of people doing wetland work in Virginia.  I do not support any revisions that would make it easier for someone to become a certified PWD and I believe the current education, experience, and professional recommendation requirements should remain.

Thank you.
