k. Description of the Application: On December 15, 2005, Public Utility District No. 1 of Snohomish County and the City of Everett (co-licensees) filed an application to amend the project's recreation plan. The co-licensees have implemented security measures to protect project hydroelectric facilities, including gate closures across Culmback Dam Road, immediately north and south of the dam. These closures prevent all public access across the dam, including access to project recreation area No. 6 (a scenic overlook adjacent to the dam) and access from the south to recreation areas Nos. 7 and 8, located on the north side of the project reservoir. Pedestrian access to recreation areas Nos. 7 and 8 remains available via a road along northwest side of the reservoir. The co-licensees' application reflects the proposed public access restrictions to the above recreation areas.

l. Location of the Application: The filing is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room, located at 888 First Street, NE., Room 2A, Washington, D.C. 20426, or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
