k. Description of Application: Article 401 currently requires the licensee to operate both project developments, Byllesby and Buck, within certain reservoir surface elevations. The licensee is planning maintenance work for the Byllesby development that would require operating between elevations 2070.0 feet and 2071.0 feet NGVD, approximately eight feet below the reservoir surface elevations allowed under article 401, for 60 days. The proposed work is intended to begin July 9, 2001 and September 7, 2001. The licensee filed an Applicant Prepared Environmental Assessment with this filing, which concludes that the proposed temporary lowering of the reservoir should have no significant impacts on environmental resources.
