   10  the physical and biological components of the environmental

   12         b. The effect of the wetland on water quality and flood
   13  mitigation.
   14         c. The ecosystem restoration value of the wetland.
   15         d. The inherent susceptibility of the wetland to
   16  development due to its geographical location or natural
   17  aesthetics.
   18         2. Before adopting or amending its list of critical
   19  wetlands, each governing board must notify the owner of any
   20  property that the district contemplates including on the list.
   21  At any time, an owner who wishes to have his or her property
   22  removed from the list must submit by certified mail to the
   23  district a letter requesting such removal. The letter must
   24  indicate that the owner wishes for his or her property to be
   25  removed from the list and must sufficiently identify such
   26  property to the governing board. The governing board shall
   27  approve a removal request that meets the requirements of this
   28  subparagraph at its next regularly scheduled meeting.
