"All in a day's work for a civil engineer. Who'll also know who keeps plans of what is buried where and how to read them. And can tell you in advance which permissions you'll need and how to get them. And at least a good approximation of how much it will cost. And how to set everything up so it will actally work." --- allthecoolshortnamesweretaken
