  2. In Condition AQ-34, what is the purpose in reporting benzene mole concentrations?

  3. In Condition BIO-22, the amount of funding is not specified. Is it determinable and how?

  4. In Condition PAL-1, what is the rationale for requiring "California" experience versus experience, for example, with southwestern cultures?

  5. In the Verification to Condition LAND-6, is the fee to be paid by the project owner to an appropriate agricultural land trust solely for the purchase of acreage or potentially some other purpose?
