k. Description of Application: The applicant seeks approval to amend article 407 of its project license to revise the schedule for management of lake levels (rule curve). The licensee proposes to commence filling the lake one month earlier in order to obtain a lake elevation of 439 feet by March 15, provide steady lake levels during fish spawning, and to maintain the lake at the summer level until November 1 in order to facilitate late-season recreation. The licensee also proposes to maintain the lake at its annual low from December 15 until January 1 of each year in order to provide a period for adjacent landowners to work on permitted encroachments. Additionally, with the exception of the fish spawning period from March 15 to June 30, the licensee requests that it be allowed to fluctuate the reservoir within 6 inches above and below the levels determined by the rule curve to provide for some peaking operation. The licensee states that it will vary from article 407 to perform necessary maintenances, safely manage flood flows, during operating emergencies, and to meet minimum flow requirements under article 408.
