All documents (original and eight copies) should be filed with: Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426.

The Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure require all intervenors filing documents with the Commission to serve a copy of that document on each person whose name appears on the official service list for the project. Further, if an intervenor files comments or documents with the Commission relating to the merits of an issue that may affect the responsibilities of a particular resource agency, they must also serve a copy of the document on that resource agency. A copy of any motion to intervene must also be served upon each representative of the Applicant specified in the particular application.

k. Description of Request: The Alabama Power Company (APC) is requesting a temporary variance of the minimum flow requirement of the project license. Because of persistent drought conditions in the project area and the need to conserve water, APC requests that it be allowed to release from the Jordan Dam Project 3,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) April 1-June 15, 2007, instead of the 4,000 cfs required in the project license. Further, APC proposes to suspend the pulse flow release of 8,000 cfs during this period. Beginning June 16, 2007, the APC would return to flow release requirements specified in the license. Included in APC's request were concurrences received from the state and federal resource agencies.
