This was a great undertaking and has been a long journey getting to this point. All of your efforts have helped us position our flowlines, penstocks, and surge tanks for the long-term. I feel so much better knowing their condition, and with monitoring strategies in place having confidence in their long-term service. Thank you all for your good work.
