They will be included in the El Paso Sector comments on VF-300 products. Thanks,  From:   Sent: Friday, January 25, 2008 12:47 PM To:   Cc:Subject: RE: VF300 Standard Drawings   Folks,Yesterday OBP and SBInet granted us permission to show the proposed Normandy design to the localranchers that have been the driving force behind the Cattle-proof components. They agreed thatstakeholder input was appropriate; therefore met with the and thismorning and received their input. The ranchers want everyone to know that they really appreciate thefact that their concerns were heard and the two bottom rails were added to prevent sick calves fromcrossing from Mexico; however, they are still very concerned about the top height of the 6x6 at 40-41”.They claim that all BLM, State, and DOT right of way fences are at least 48” tall, and they believe thatcows not only can, but will jump the current height. They suggest that 1 more piece of steel be added6-7” above the 6x6 tube.

We believe that the upcoming O&M fence repair contract couldeasily handle these types of breaches in a timely manner, and barbed wire seems like a legitimate fix.If and when this is proven to be ineffective, other options could then be evaluated. We might want toconsider having the I-beams manufactured in a way that allows a quick and easy way to add a strandof wire above the tube. (Holes punched, anchor bolts, etc.) All in all, the locals were pleased with what’s been done thus far, and they’re optimistic that their other concerns will be addressed in the future. Thanks, After review at the Sector level, please see that and are copied on theforwarding to and the SBInet crew. El Paso Sector TI Coordinator   From:   Sent: Thursday, January 17, 2008 12:58 PM To: J Cc:   Subject: FW: VF300 Standard Drawings Importance: High   Folks, Please review attachment relative to the VF-300 fencing products. Establish communication with and collectively develop your comments. Once completed, pleaseforward toand I for final review. We will then forward to OBP. Several months ago,suggested that an additional piece of metal be applied to the Normandy Style fencing product toprevent cattle infiltration. If that feature isn’t reflected in the drawings, please readdress and ensureOBP is aware we want this. EPT VF-300 involved the following stations:DNMLOBSTNYST I believe YST will have Jersey Barriers placed under the Zaragoza POE (0.03 miles) Please ensure we have PAIC input from the aforementioned stations as well. I believe these stationsmay have previously indicated their preference of the Normandy Style. I have additionally attached thelatest pictures that the USACE provided me. Regards,    (b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b)(6)(b)(6)(b)(6)(b) (6)(b)(6)  From:   Sent: Thursday, January 17, 2008 11:44 AM To:Cc:Subject: FW: VF300 Standard Drawings Importance: High   All, As requested, please give the attachment a look and comment to Please note the timeframementioned in his email. Thanks,  From:Sent: Thursday, January 17, 2008 1:12 PM To: ;FLOSSMAN, LOREN W; Subject: FW: VF300 Standard Drawings Importance: High   All   Attached is the draft toolkit for our standard vehicle fence designs. Please note that we have alreadyidentified a few minor revisions that need to be made (see below). Please review and provide your comments by NLT COB Friday, January 25th.   Right now, VF is being planned for the Marfa, El Paso, Yuma, Tucson and El Centro sectors   -I assume you will distribute to the sectors for review and comment.   -please distribute to the appropriate Corps/Baker folks working VF projects.   -FWS input is desired as well.   Thanks everyone!   From:   Sent: Wednesday, January 16, 2008 4:19 PM To:   CcSubject: VF300 Standard Drawings   (b) (6)(b)(b (b)(6)(b)(6)(b) (6)(b)(b) (6)(b)(6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b)(6)(b) (6)(b) (6)(b)  1. The following comments will be incorporated into a final set that will be distributed to SBI:   A. Sheet I-1. On line for Vehicle-Gate, change G-1 to V-1G to match sheet number. Filename, G-1.dwg, can remain from my standpoint.   B. Sheet V-1G.   (1). Plan shows fence 5' off of border. Need to revise to reflect 3'.   (2). Sections 1 and 2 show concrete top at 3 below grade. Need to show concretecoming to grade to avoid corrosion and to keep the sleeves from filling in and locking the posts inplace.   (3). The elevation shows all posts the same height. Need to show staggered postheight to avoid confusion.   (4). Sections 1 and 2 -- show depth of post & sleeve embedment.   .2. Final comments by the PDT were requested by COB on 16 January 2008. Any additionalcomments will be evaluated; revisions to the drawings made, as required; and the revised setforwarded to SBI. <<VF300 STANDARD FENCE DETAILS 1-15-08.pdf>> The comments shown above are generally minor in nature and, in my opinion, would have very littleeffect on the study that Boeing is performing. I don't expect any additional comments that wouldchange Boeing's path -- just my forecast.V/R,   Chief, Design Branch   (b) (6)(b) (6)
