k. Description of Request: Article 434 requires Avista Corporation (licensee) to file a plan, with the Commission, to conduct seasonal, site-specific monitoring of bank profiles in the lower Clark Fork River. The licensee indicated that prior to relicensing of the project, it initiated easement discussions with the individual landowners. As of December 2001, the licensee indicated, it acquired 69 out of a possible 87 easements. The licensee stated that the erosion issues of the landowners group have been adequately addressed and, therefore, requested that license article 434 be deleted. The Clark Fork Management Committee, which is comprised of one representative from each of the 27 parties (the licensee, state and federal resource agencies, Native American tribes and non-governmental organizations) to the licensing Settlement Agreement, concurred that article 434 was no longer necessary and should be deleted.
