This is the route I plan to follow with my new endeavor. been doing a lot of research on the Stormwater, Erosion and Sediment management. Seems there is a real market for that stuff especially down south in my area. Not only in residential/commercial developments, but in industrial and coastal/wetland restoration. I'm working on a couple of certifications through the state of louisiana and the EPA. I'm drawing up a business plan to work off of. Goal is to start small with stormwater/retention pond repairs & maintenance, drainage installs/repairs and construction site erosion control. Then eventually evolve into a full scale Stormwater/Erosion System design & development.

Im also working on setting up my new company.

if you ever see my truck and trailer somewhere, stop in and chat if you have time.
Ok, will do. I'm in the process of tryin to more commercial jobs. So either this month or next month I'll be free off of my J-O-B

I'm working on a bid for a retention pond overhaul rightnow. The way I'm figuring it will allow for the purchase of a used D3 dozer and 16k# excavator. I plan to use the first few jobs to purchase equipment, price them to cover exspenses, make a lil profit and pay a machine off.

sounds like you are going to be doing a lot of work for and with the Corps of Engineers.

That's the exact reason I'm getting all the EPA Certifications and working on a Coastal & Wetland Habitat restoration license through the state of louisiana.

some pics fro the high school install we are working on, still trying to find all the different irrigation systems and zones they have installed. everything is so out of date, that they have decided we should just tear it all out and put new systems in.
