k. Description of Application: The licensee is requesting an amendment of license regarding the minimum flow requirements for the bypassed reach as specified in Article 35. Currently, Article 35 requires the release of 75 cubic feet per second (cfs) or inflow whichever is less August 1 through April 30 and 150 cfs or inflow whichever is less May 1 through July 31. The licensee is requesting that it be allowed to release 75 cfs or inflow whichever is less year round. The results of studies conducted by the licensee indicate that 75 cfs provides adequate protection for the aquatic resources in the bypassed reach. Implementation of the Aquatic Mitigation Plan under Article 37 may no longer be necessary with any release of a permanent 75 cfs year round flow. The licensee has filed an application to amend the Water Quality Certificate with the Washington Department of Ecology.
