Perhaps where Harvey is the lead on a project it will be well managed/ designed, but I would disagree otherwise 100% in regards to rep. BV & Salida are the ONLY places where I have seen their work turn out as quality work.
I know Harvey is a good guy & have ZERO desire to hurt his business prospects, but the morons that did Lawson deserve to NEVER touch a river again. Lawson aside, I have never seen one of their projects that is worth a crap at other than the highest of flows. I used to go hit the Lawson hole after work & try to find someone who was willing to run Dumont with me, now I drive by EVERY DAY & see no-one. If THAT is the kind of community development that you're looking for in your town, give them a call.
I hear their "commitment to making it right" then I find out that it's US that has to pay for their screwup. The more I hear about rep or have to deal with their mistakes, the more I hope that no municipality ever gives them a chance to screw up another river.
But hey, it's not like I've got much of an opinion about that though...
