5 LIST OF SITES IDENTIFIED IN ENVIRONMENTAL DATABASE RECORDS SEARCH The list belw indicates the results f an electrnic search f certain federal and state level envirnmental-hazard recrd systems, r databases, that are knwn t include cntaminated sites. The databases are searched fr hazard sites at standard distances frm the subject prperty. The standard search distance is nt the same fr all databases, but depends upn the nature f the envirnmental hazard which the database represents. First American uses search distances that cmply with the U.S. Envirnmental Prtectin Agency (EPA) "All Apprpriate Inquiry" (AAI) standard fr gvernment recrds search (40 CFR Part ) under the U.S. Small Business Liability Relief and Revitalizatin Act ("the Brwnfields Law").

8 OIL & GAS WELL LOCATIONS WITHIN 1/4 MILE OF THE RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY Buyer shuld be aware that ne r mre il and/r gas well lcatins exist within a radius f ne-furth (1/4) f ne (1) mile f the Residential Prperty, based n a search f valid gegraphic crdinates cntained in the current Statewide Well Lcatin Database maintained by the Califrnia Department f Cnservatin, Divisin f Oil, Gas and Gethermal Resurces (DOGGR) ( Well Lcatin Database ). Health and safety hazards may be assciated with il and gas wells, whether active r nt, including, but nt limited t, sil and grundwater cntaminatin, il and methane seeps, fire hazards, air quality prblems, and physical safety hazards t humans and animals. Buyer is advised that additinal wells may exist in the area f the Residential Prperty which are nt cntained in the Well Lcatin Database. As explained belw, wells that d nt have valid gegraphic crdinates in the Well Lcatin Database are nt disclsed in this Reprt. The physical prperty bundaries f well lcatins and the Residential Prperty are nt factred int the calculatin f the specified search radius. ADVISORY: If an abandned well that has nt been safely plugged exists n a prperty, the landwner may be subject t additinal csts fr "re-abandnment" f the well in cmpliance with current State laws and regulatins. The State ffers supprt fr the re-abandnment csts fr qualifying wells, hwever that supprt is limited. WELL STATUS DESCRIPTORS: Idle -- used intermittently. Abandned / Plugged and Abandned -- well has been sealed under state supervisin. Orphan -- well has been deserted and has n knwn respnsible peratr.

See next page fr mre infrmatin abut determining well prximity t a specific prperty. EXPLANATION: The Well Lcatin Database includes 193,000+ well lcatin recrds. Apprximately ninety-five percent (95%) f these recrds include a cmplete latitude and lngitude gecde (gegraphic crdinates) making the well lcatable. The remaining Well Lcatin Database recrds lack a valid gecde and are, therefre, nt lcatable sufficient t allw a prperty-specific determinatin. This database is searched fr well lcatins within ne-furth (1/4) f ne (1) mile arund the gecded pint representing the Residential Prperty. Well lcatins, if any, within the specified parameters are listed in the table abve. Califrnia has established laws with respect t well drilling, peratin, maintenance, and abandnment t prevent, as far as pssible, damage t life, health, prperty, and natural resurces; damage t undergrund il and gas depsits frm infiltrating water and ther causes; lss f il, gas, r reservir energy, and damage t undergrund and surface waters suitable fr irrigatin r dmestic purpses by the infiltratin f, r the additin f, detrimental substances. (Califrnia Public Resurces Cde 3106). Of the 193,000+ wells identified in the Well Lcatin Database, apprximately 88,000 are still in use. The remaining wells (1) are used intermittently ("idle" wells), (2) have been sealed ("abandned" r "plugged and abandned") under the supervisin f the DOGGR, r (3) have been deserted and have n knwn respnsible peratr (referred t as "rphan" wells). ENVIROCHECK REPORT - Page 8 f 15

9 The DOGGR is respnsible fr maintenance f rphaned wells. T defray the maintenance csts, il cmpanies pay the State 4.3 cents per barrel a year. A prtin f this assessment funds the Orphan Well Plugging Fund ( Fund ) with an annual $1 millin budget. Since its inceptin in the 1970 s, the Fund has facilitated the plugging f wells by hired cntractrs. The selectin prcess fr wells t be plugged cnsiders numerus factrs including, but are nt limited t, the prximity f wells t ppulated areas, the amunt f pressure in well reservirs, and ther hazards.

13 METHODS AND LIMITATIONS -- PLEASE READ! As in all studies and reprts, there are limitatins in this Reprt. This Part will summarize (a) the methds used in creating this Reprt, (b) the limitatins with respect t the data and the gvernment site lists ( Databases ), and (c) the respnsibilities and liabilities f ur cmpany under this Reprt. Please read this Part carefully s yu understand the limitatins n this Reprt and ur respnsibilities. A. LIMITATIONS ON DATABASE INFORMATION We have accurately reprted the infrmatin in the Databases as f the Database Dates. With respect t the Databases, it is imprtant t understand that: The Databases may nt be accurate, current, fully detailed, r cmplete. A parcel f real prperty may be affected by cntaminatin r envirnmental hazards that have nt been identified n any f the Databases. A Database may nt cntain sufficient infrmatin t lcate a particular parcel f prperty. Changes may have ccurred in the Databases since the Database Date specified abve. There may be ther gvernmental databases with relevant infrmatin which are nt included in this Reprt. B. WE DO NOT CONSTANTLY CHECK DATABASES FOR CHANGES Each Database used in this Reprt is updated by the Respnsible Agency at varius intervals. Updates fr a Database are determined by the Respnsible Agency and may be made at any time and withut ntice. We maintain an update schedule and makes reasnable effrts t use updated infrmatin but it cannt feasibly d s n a cnstant basis, and the cmplexities f btaining and adapting the data int a usable frmat fr preparing this Reprt necessitates sme delay nce the updated infrmatin is btained. Fr these reasns, we reprt infrmatin as f the date when the Database was last updated by us. That date is specified as the Database Date fr each Database in Part 4. C. LIMITATIONS ON HOW SITES ARE LOCATED AND REPORTED Due t the way infrmatin is reprted in the Databases, the Sites identified are POINT SOURCES ONLY which means that the specific lcatin f the Site is lcated based n the infrmatin in the Database and used as the beginning pint fr measuring the distance t the Residential Prperty. This Reprt des NOT use AREAS f ptential envirnmental cntaminatin, such as a cntaminatin study area r a grundwater plume, even if the surce f that study area r plume derives frm a Site. In ther wrds, this Reprt identifies a single pint as the apprximate surce pint fr an envirnmental hazard identified n a Database, even if the hazard actually cvers an expanded area. In the Databases, the Sites are identified by their address. In this Reprt, the pint lcatin fr a Site is based n that address, nt n the actual lcatin f a surce f cntaminatin n the Prperty. As a result, the lcatin f any Site set frth in this Reprt may nt be precisely the lcatin f the surce f cntaminatin. Furthermre, sme f the Databases may nt have the cmplete address infrmatin fr a Site s it can nt be lcated at all. The lcatin f the Residential Prperty has been determined by crss-referencing the prvided Assessr Parcel Number ("APN") against a vectr parcel database in which the bundaries f the parcel crrespnding t the given APN are represented as a gereferenced plygn. Sites that are mapped within the specified radii f this plygn will be reprted.
