I am glad to see that DEP has reinstated Ms. Bersok, but DEP's launching of an investigation against her -- purportedly because she backed up copies of her files and communicated her absence from the office on an attendance board instead of some other means -- remains troubling.

It seems clear to me that the wrong person was investigated.  DEP's handling of Ms. Bersok's objection to the Highlands Ranch Mitigation Bank goes to show that there is something larger at stake here:  if we have any hope of protecting what wetlands remain in Florida, DEP must not move forward with this permit, which throws science out the window.  Calling it "performance-based" sounds good, but the draft permit is anything but that.  It is a free-pass -- an announcement to mitigation bankers around the state that Florida will allow them to profit off the mere POSSIBILITY that the bank might, someday, make up for wetlands destroyed TODAY.
