Having worked in the Hydric Soil arena since its inception, I can honestly state that I can count on the fingers of one hand those whom I believe are truly competent identifying and delineating Hydric Soils as well as training others to do the same. Travis Richardson is one of those few. He is also extremely proficient in wetland delineation. In addition, Travis is an honest and dedicated hard worker. I truthfully acknowledge that if I needed assistance with any endeavor concerning wetlands, Travis Richardson is the individual I would employ.
