LOMR Reviewers to be More Experienced

I think many people would like the contractor’s staff to be more experienced with hydraulic modeling and knowledgeable about floodplain management. Many times with LOMR submittals we find that the person reviewing the submittal doesn’t have much knowledge. A lot of times they are recent college graduates. Too often we have to spend time responding to comments that don’t really impact the final BFE or location of the floodplain line. There needs to be better oversight of the inexperienced LOMR reviewers before they send out their comments.
