Mr. Sweiss,

I am sorry that apparently Mr. Uzegbu did not clearly understand me when I talked to him last week.

I had asked him to relay to you that I wished to have your written response to my questions (there are only two items), and then we would find a time when we can get together with your consultants for further clarification if required. The reason for this is that it is not just myself that awaits your clarification when you state that:

"The hydrologic modeling conducted for the Leona project determined that the restoration of the quarry site would reduce peak discharge and total runoff from the site even with the construction of the residential units. "

"Currently all surface runoff from the Leona site drains to the new detention pond."

I believe you had nodded in the affirmative when I asked you about your pending response when we recently met on Thursday, Feb 10. It has been an entire week since, and would appreciate your response as soon as possible. I think it would be unfair to continue to ask Mr. Uzegbu to serve as your messenger.
