Unbelievable

This sounded odd, until I saw the photos, and can't believe anyone would even ASK to do this! There are just too many things wrong with this to even start. As someone who was recently successful in fighting the local government, those in the area need to get active now! The sooner you can get alternative "expert" opinions into the agencies, the less they will be able to rely on their experts who are just paid consultants, and consultants know who pay them, believe me! And if you don't have a lawyer the bloody loaded artist will just bowl over everyone!

It's one thing to put flags in an urban park, another to tromp to death a delicate area, and leave barriers for light, rain, and flying objects, then trample it all again.

I can't believe it. What a megalomaniac!

And remember they have dedicated millions to river cleanup. When I spoke with them we discussed cleaning up the railroad rebar in many locations. A couple of weeks of oddness for a cleanup? Tough call.

Is that like beating the shit out of someone, but promising to pay the hospital bill first? I don't relate, don't agree, but I don't leave near the Ark, let alone CO. There would be mutiny if that was tried where I live, hence my reaction. Crazy, just crazy.

Laura,

The section of the Ark is sandwiched between US Highway 50 and a railroad track, both of which have pretty much already destoryed the natural river banks. Like Dana (Mania) says above, not the most pristine place. Also apparently there's a pretty big budget for cleanup, including cleanup of previously-existing junk like rebar and concrete in the river (wonder why the RR shouldn't have to clean up their mess?).

This was discussed pretty extensively awhile back if anyone wants to check some of the previous posts and arguments for/against:
