I am one of the few companies in my area that holds all the state licenses, plus ive been requesting bid info on all kinds of stuff. the bid isnt untill december, so it gives me some time to really work my numbers to the T.

That's great that LA hasn't done away with a lot of the license requirements for DOT work like TX has in the last 5 years appx. No money left in it now.

Looks like you're by the levee, what plant are you by in the back, or that's rigs in the river?

The plant in the back ground, is a concrete plant off of Engineers rd, in Belle Chasse, the cranes in the distance are on the Intracoastal Waterway.

thats what backflows we use down here. Why did you use PVC above ground, its not against code down there, over here in Lake Charles we have to use Copper and it has to be installed by a licsened plumber or plumbing board liscened backflow installer, and we now have to have them tested after they are installed before the city will approve its use.
