“I  will gladly fill out the survey and send it back.  I’ve attached our monthly and rolling-year HAP and VOC reports that show a steady decline ever since we implemented your recommendations.  Most significant is the drop in HAPs after we incorporated the non-HAP solvent.  We got our VOCs under control due to a steady dose of educating the press operators on the proper solvents to use in various situations.  Also, all we had to do was “threaten” access restriction to solvents and immediately our solvent usage dropped.  Thank you for all you did!”
