If you are(were) in soil conservation let me ask you a question. Maybe you can help me in approaching them here. 3 years ago we did a project that cost me about 1/4 and gov about 3/4. Had I done it alone it prob would have cost me about half. As you know 100% has to be done as the gov. says, with it paying a portion and me paying a portion. They designed it and that was the way that it had to be done. Well now due to the design, it has failed. Am I responsible for fixing it now at my expense even though it had to be done their way or will the gov pay the cost of fixing it. How would you approach it if you were me. Your ideas would be appreciated since I will have to do something soon to stop the erosion that is now taking place.
