Yeah, we're just barely scraping by down here... Have only averaged $40k/month for the last 4 months in revenue... Under $25k in labor costs. Can you help a poor brother out?

Or, back in high school doing it by hand in a couple hours when my overhead was under a grand a month.

Incredible. I wonder if the waterway commissioner would like to know this as well when it comes to keeping waterways clear of debris and minimizing dredging cost for the tax payers.

Not all creeks/ditches are navigable. Plenty of places want inert fill around here, just gotta know where to look

Your right and as long as you don't get caught dumping illegally and clogging up waterways navigable or not who should care, O I just remembered the folks that have to deal with flooding due to dumping in waterways and no place for the water to go except on their property and homes and businesses.

Not really, but no point in winning an internet argument.

Waterway commissioner was a play off of your official saying it is ok to dump debris into a tiny creek. Try reading the entire thread and be considerate of other peoples lives and homes especially when it comes to debris choked waterways. Water will flood over banks and find the lowest point, hopefully not your place or a neighbor.

Have to agree with easylift on this one. Dumping in a waterway will get you locked up and that "waterway commissioner" will swear on a stack of bricks that he doesn't know you. As far as price to remove the walls...$800.

You guys live in much higher populated areas. The banks of most creeks and bridges around here are filled with large stones. Adding to it with a few bricks is considered helpful.
