I would now like to turn the call over to your host, Martin Kropelnicki. Martin Kropelnicki Good morning, everybody and welcome to the second quarter 2010 earnings conference call for California Water Service Group. With me today is Peter Nelson, President and CEO of California Water Service Group. I would like to remind everyone that a replay of today's discussion will be available from July 29 through September 27 at 1-866-253-6505, ID number 1469346. Prior to looking at the results for the quarter, I would like to take a brief moment to discuss forward-looking statements. In particular, during the course of this conference call, the company may make certain forward-looking statements because these statements deal with future events, they are subject to various risks and uncertainty and actual results could differ materially from the company's current expectations. Because of this, the company strongly advises all current stockholders as well as all interested parties to carefully read and understand the company's disclosures on risk and uncertainty found in our Form 10-K, Form 10-Q, and other reports filed from time-to-time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
