The questions presented:
Palajac asked to verify the cost of a new well would be $200,000. T. Drenth asked if we need a new well or just do maintenance on the existing well. Spearing questioned the need for a larger screen for the well. Palajac questioned if we need a new tower or just do maintenance on the existing tower. He also asked if we could go over the funding breakdown again.
