Mr. Waltman,

Please see the attached documents responsive to your request, received by our office on March 9, 2020. Also, there are hundreds of form-emails which were sent by constituents in opposition to the proposed pipeline project. Nearly all of these must be redacted to remove constituents' home addresses and home telephone numbers. Can you please clarify if you're seeking copies of every single email, or would you be willing to omit from your request, for the sake of time and efficiency, further responses that include constituent form-emails.

See below for an example constituent form-email:
