Re: “Engineers present multimillion dollar sewer project to Coulee Dam”

Letters to the Editor


It is too bad, that public funded projects are so expensive! Unfortunately, most projects like this are designed by large engineering firms whose pay is based on the cost of the project. Why would they have any incentive at all to save the customer money? They dont!

Public funded projects are built bullet proof, with the most expensive and over-the-top designs, equipment and materials. The engineers don’t worry about how to save, it’s faster to go overboard with everything, which ensures it will work. They collect their money and everyone is happy, except the people paying. In this case, the citizens of Coulee Dam.
