Okeechobec,Jil.349:n (941) 467-8497 Lindahl, Browning, Ferrari & Hellstrom, Inc. 210 Jupiter Lakes Boulevard Building 5000, Suite 104 Jupiter, FL 33468-0727 March 18, 1998 Dear Len: This is an urgent request that you send to me whatever information you have available from your work on our drainage problem. To date, Audubon has paid invoices to you of $1,000 (December 17, 1996), $7,777.50 (January 27, 1998), and $562.50 (February 23, 1998). You completed surveys on our Sanctuary in early December of last year, yet we have received not a single document from your firm. The Grasshopper Sparrow breeding season is upon us. Audubon immediately needs the information you have to evaluate the potential effectiveness of suggested remedies. By Friday of this week, please send me the results of your surveys on our property ( elevations, coordinates, etc.), and calculations associated with recommending the culvert configurations in the Military Grade. I understand this is a work in progress, that recommendations can be improved as new information is obtained, and that we will receive further invoices from you for additional work, but we need as much data as we can get at this time. c: John Morgan, SFWMD James Slack, USFWS Sincerely, Paul N. Gray, Ph.D. Manager


National Audubon Society 1 Page FAX Len Lindahl Lindahl, Browning, Ferrari & Hellstrom, Inc. 210 Jupiter Lakes Boulevard Building 5000, Suite 104 Jupiter, FL 33468-0727 Dear Len: Ordway-Whittell Kissimmee Prairie Sanctuary 17350 N.W. 203rd Ave. Okeechobee, FL 34972 (941) 467-8497 March 26, 1998 Thank you for sending survey maps in response to my request for data on our drainage problem in Fish Slough. We still need calculation sheets for your recommendation that two 30" culverts, and two 48" culverts, are appropriate in the Military Grade. The South Florida Water Management District apparently is unwilling to move forward without written, reviewable plans, and rightly so. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service delivered a letter to the President of the National Audubon Society informing him of our potential culpability in the event the sparrows perish. We are serious about resolving this problem. I am frustrated with this long delay m producing these numbers. I also am concerned that you have diverted your time to design a second plan to dig a ditch across our southern border to the Carlton Flow-way, and running that flow-way south to the Eagle Island Road bridge. Whatever the merits of that plan, it will not address our urgent time frame. That plan will take too much time because: many miles of ditches would have to be surveyed and dug; we would have to determine who will pay for each mile of construction, who will pay for maintenance, . and how that maintenance will be governed (many landowners); we have no written proof that the Carlton Easement actually goes to the bridge; David Durando does not want us to use his flow way; and Audubon thinks it illogical to spend extra money designing a plan that likely is inferior to the original plan. Please let me know when I can expect written plans for the culverts. c: John Morgan, SFWMD James Slack, USFWS Sincerely, Paul N. Gray, Ph.D. Manager
