k. Description of Request: Indiana Michigan Power Company (I&M) is requesting the Commission's approval to fill an existing channel located within the project boundary. The channel forms an island, and provides access to the St. Joseph River to four property owners. Accumulation of sediments has allowed for wetland type vegetation to grow on the channel surface. Additionally, accumulation of debris and other materials in the channel area have caused some health concerns among the City officials. To permanently solve this problem, I&M is proposing to fill the channel area, so as to connect the island with properties across the channel. I&M is proposing to remove the filled channel and island from the project boundary, and to replace the wetland area, that would be lost by channel filling, to another location within the project boundary. The channel and the island are both owned by the licensee.
