    hi from southern california

    I am newbie to all of this civil and land planning etc.
    4 yrs new. I come from an electronic communications engineering and computer science arena. But for the last four years I have done precise grading and rough grading plan. I am learning streets, sewer and water and storm drains. but it is a slow process.

    I am all ways willing to learn new things.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    just make sure the inlet is above grade from the outlet, and remember when those contour lines are really close together, that's a really steep hill, and know that retention/detention areas do not have to be square, and you're all set

    greetings from downeast Maine, where waters flow to the bay, so who cares?
