The Civil Engineers card says "On a future build action all rivers and water are $1k for that build."

Is that $1,000 for each tile on a river or water hex or $1,000 for all the tiles on a river or water hex for the build?

Example: a build has two river hexes, a water hex and a clear terrain hex. Is the cost $5,000 or $3,000?

Edit: The question has been answered, and I edited the thread tile to reflect the answer.

Doom Turtle, thanks for your reply which was confirmed on Legal Track Placement in the Railways Series -- A Comprehensive Guide where I also posted this question. William Simonitis replied there:

I originally posted the suggestion for that particular card. As I recall it, we eventually agreed that Civil Engineers would, for one build, reduce all river and water hexes to a cost of one dollar per hex built. See the link below for more information.

After reading the thread, I'm convinced that William's answer is as official as it gets since he suggested the card to Bobby Warren who initiated and coordinated the design of the deck.
