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: Warrensburg Hydro Power Limited Partnership (licensee) is requesting a temporary variance of the reservoir elevation requirement stipulated in the Warrensburg Hydroelectric Project license to complete maintenance work. The south abutment or berm wall area of the project exhibits leakage that began shortly after the completion of the project in 1988. Based on continual leakage monitoring programs, numerous leakage mitigation measures have taken place over the years. The mitigation measures appear to have managed or controlled the situation; however, undesirable leakage continues. Based on the findings of two independent engineering assessments, the integrity of the south berm wall is not believed to be compromised in its current condition. Nevertheless, based on recommendations, the licensee would like to proceed in implementing a plan (begun in 2005) to correct the leakage situation. The work activities would require the reservoir to be drawn down as similarly done in 2005 and 2006. The proposed schedule indicates the draw down to commence on July 31 and the construction work to occur over a four to six week period.

l. Location of the Application: The filing is available for inspection and reproduction at the Commission's Public Reference Room, located at 888 First Street, NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426 or by calling (202) 502-8371, or by calling (202) 502-8371.
