k. Description of Request: The Alabama Power Company is requesting an extension of the temporary variance to the Neely Henry Dam rule curve approved in the Commission's February 26, 2001 Order. The revised rule curve allows Alabama Power to keep the reservoir elevation at 507 feet mean sea level (msl) from December 1 through March 1, two feet higher than allowed in Article 50 of the license. The February 26, 2001 Order allowed Alabama Power to operate under this revised rule curve for a trial period of three years, which will expire February 26, 2004. Alabama Power plans to include this revised rule curve in its application for a new license, and is seeking to extend the trial period, until the Commission issues a decision on their relicense application. The current license expires on July 31, 2007.
