13 Environmental Stewardship Goals SARI Line Relocation Engine Emission Compliance Carbon Foot Print Inventory Fuel Cell Evaluation Levels of Service Respond to odor complaints within 1 hour for plants / 1 day for sewers Odor complaints under 70 annually for all facilities Respond to sewer spills within 1 hour 4 mgd of urban runoff with no fees

14 Business Principles Goals Full-cost recovery for Urban Runoff Program (new) Local sewer services transferred back to satellite sewer system owners Levels of Service Respond to public inquiries about construction 1 day New construction permits processed 1 day

15 Wastewater Management Goals Sustainable Biosolids Program Disinfection of Final Effluent Odor Control – maintain schedule with planned improvements Levels of Service Meet GWRS specification water requirements Provide up to 104 mgd to GWRS 100% compliance with industrial pretreatment requirements Meet secondary treatment levels by 2012 Contain sewer spills within 5 hours Recycle more than 95% of Biosolids

16 Workplace Environment Goals Ongoing Leadership Development Maintain a Safe Workplace Levels of Service Simplify succession management process Develop a leadership development program 45 hour of training per year/employee 100% mandatory OSHA training requirements Maintain industry average or lower for accidents 2.5 work days or less lost or away from work

17 Asset Management Plan is our long-range planning document that provides a framework to understand a utility’s:  Inventory and condition of physical assets  Present and future demands for rehabilitation and replacement  Estimated short- and long-term financial needs

26 Key Operating Expenses  Transportation More biosolids result in an increase in hauling costs  Chemicals Decrease in usage, but increases in unit costs  Energy Usage exceeds generation – unit costs continue to increase  Labor Although staffing is flat, labor costs will increase
