k. Description of Proposal: Improvements to the existing cut-off wall around the outlet structure and along the south embankment at Lower Lindsey Lake Dam are necessary to reduce seepage. The work is required under part 12 of the Commission's regulations. Lower Lindsey Lake will be lowered to an elevation of 6490.0 feet to facilitate the work. Deviations from the target and allowable minimum flows required by article 39 below Middle and Lower Lindsey Lake Dams are necessary to ensure continued release of water to Lindsey Creek during and after construction. A target flow of 0.20 cubic feet per second (cfs) and an allowable minimum flow of 0.10 cfs are proposed to maintain flow in Lindsey Creek until the Spring of 2006. The improvement work will be performed from July though September 2005. Refilling of the lakes will begin after completion of the work and will take one year.
