                     A.   Last Friday we completed the rollout of ActiveG of our Maximo, which allows us to
                          link our work order geographically and historically and find hydrant information.
                     B.   Reach IV: Will finish sleeve valve actuator a week earlier than we anticipated.

                     D.   We located two more digester for the microturbines. These digesters will save us
                          a significant amount of money on the power bill at Moreno Valley.
                     E.   Garner Valley’s request: Mike Luker will prepare a letter of response explaining
