No Board discussion will occur, neither will Board action be taken. This session will consist of a presentation to be made by Skip Griffin, Sr. Vice President, PBS&J Inc., which has partnered with Water Standard Company to develop an ocean-based desalination technology that it is marketing internationally. PBS&J and Water Standard Company believe that their Seawater Conversion Vessel project concept merits consideration as an alternative to land-based desalination. This will be a one-hour presentation, plus a question and answer period when public comment will be received.
