Wetland Delineation Professional Assurance Program: WI Department of Natural Resources (DNR)  

[DNR has established a professional assurance program for those highly experienced professional wetland consultants that meet certain qualifications. Professional assurance means that the work of individuals meeting training and performance standards will receive spot checks rather than individual review. This should result in faster decisions and improved wetlands protection.]
