Subject: Lake Hartwell Sign Installation

Dear Mr. Cassidy:

RMT Inc. (RMT) has completed the installation of the "Fish Advisory" signs at Lake Hartwell in
South Carolina and Georgia. A total of 79 signs were installed as directed by Tim Crabtree United
States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). Mr. Crabtree was very helpful in sighting the sign
locations and in locating the boat ramps. Schlumberger Technology Corporation (Schlumberger) has
completed the requirements set forth in the agreement to place fish advisory signs at designated
locations around Lake Hartwell. As stated in our Workplan, additional signs are available for use as
replacements as needed.

The initial installation was at 79 locations around Lake Hartwell. A list of the locations is attached to
this letter. RMT used a pneumatic driver to drive 10 foot long, galvanized post 4 feet into the groimd.
The signs were installed onto the post using tamper resistant hardware. RMT used existing posts at
many locations where the old advisory signs were still present or where space was adequate on an
existing post. The signs were mounted in accordance with the USACE manual for lake sign
installation or as directed by Tim Crabtree, Park Ranger USACE. The location of each sign was
predetermined during a site visit with USACE prior to beginning the project. RMT met with Tim
Crabtree USACE on April 7, 8, 9, and 15 to visit the sites and mark the locations for the signs. In
addition, Tim Crabtree USACE, marked several locations while he was about his regular duties as
Park Ranger. The signs were installed over a two week period beginning April 20 and ending May 1,
2009.

RMT will store the remaining signs and posts in Greenville, South Carolina for future maintenance.
Mr. Tim Crabtree, USACE will monitor the signs on an armual basis and provide RMT with a list of
locations that require repair or replacement. RMT will use the stored signs to replace the damaged or
