k. Description of Amendment Request: S.D. Warren requests Commission approval of its proposal to amend the Sebago Lake Level Management Plan. The licensee proposed to: (1) Install a real-time telemetering water level gage at White's Bridge; (2) further define the upper and lower limits of the lake level rages between May 1 and November 1; (3) provide a target range (+0/−6 inches) for the August 1 date; (4) increase the maximum flow of the operating parameters for Normal Flows from 833 cubic feet per second (cfs) to 1000 cfs; (5) compress the abnormal flow stages from three to two by increasing the maximum flows allowed to be released in stage 1 from 1,667 cfs to 2,667 cfs; and (6) modify the response times for each stage that actuate the increased flows.

The purpose of this notice is to invite comments on S.D. Warren's request to amend the Sebago Lake Level Management Plan. As a result of the drought conditions during the summer of 1999 and the unusual rainfall in September 1999, the operating parameters of the lake level management plan were challenged. S.D. Warren believes the proposed modifications would help improve the management objectives of balancing the competing interests of the lake's resources.
