    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.

    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.
