Executive Summary

Because the Health & Condition Report is a large document containing many high resolution map graphics, it is not practical to offer it as a single file download. Choose the option presented below which best suits your needs.


Option 1.  Final Health and Condition Report(4.5Meg PDF low resolution graphics)
A complete report with low resolution map graphics. Choose this option if you would like to read the entire report, but do not need to print or closely inspect the map graphics.

Option 2.  Final Health and Condition Report(314K PDF text only)
The report with map graphics removed, but with links to higher resolution map graphics for quick download. Choose this option if you want to read the report and inspect the higher resolution map graphics separately as needed.

Option 3.  Individual Higher Resolution Maps
Choose this option to download and view or print a particular map graphic at higher resolution. Note: Some maps may be too large for viewing in the Acrobat browser plugin. If you have difficulty, save them to your local drive and then open them with Adobe Acrobat Reader outside of your browser environment.
