Tom, I agree on sharing but certainly we would craft our own response. We’ve been sharing media
items related to West Lake or with the occasional overlap from FUSRAP with the Corps since their
IAs began (IB and remedy). It’s always for their awareness and ours to ensure consistency in
information. Especially since Robyn or Paul are often in the public, such as at CAG meetings
answering questions in sidebar discussions. Wouldn’t see this as an issue here any differently. If the
information needs to go to St. Louis, Robyn can also forward it on to Susan Adams in St. Louis.

Subject: Suggestion on WSJ response
I just wanted to let you all know that I talked to Jough Donakowski with the Kansas City USACE and
he confirmed to me that there is no clean up level established for lead 210 for the FUSRAP sites. He
even pulled up one of the St. Louis RODs to confirm.
I suggest that we forward the latest set of questions to Robyn and Jough just for their awareness. Do
we have a contact with the St. Louis USACE group. We might want to forward to that person as well.
I’m not saying that we ask them to response but I think they should know what this reporter is
