        of sufficient size to be easily seen at the base of the antenna
        structure." At the time of inspection, the agent observed that there
        was no Antenna Structure Registration Number posted at the base of
        the antenna structure.

       should include a time line for completion of pending corrective
       action(s). The response must be complete in itself and signed by a
       principal or officer of the Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control
