RLD Inspections

Currently the RLD inspection is every 14 days or within 48 hrs of a measurable rain event. If I comprehend the proposed inspection period correctly, the new requirement would be every 4 or 7 days plus within 48 hrs of a measured rain event. The amount of fuel to be spent to be in compliance with is requirement would be unbearable not only to the RLD, but the enviroment itself. I am a registered RLD and I have been in the developement field for close to thirty years. Anyone who would propose or support such a requirement immediately tells me they have zero field experience. This type of proposal damages the integrity the branch of government which proposes it. The inspection period should remain at 14 days,48 hrs within a measurable rain event. The rain fall amount should stay at 0.50 . 0.25 should not rerequire an inspection.
