k. Description of Application: Because of ongoing drought conditions, the applicant seeks approval to temporarily amend article 407 of its project license to revise the schedule for management of lake levels (rule curve). Under the rule curve, the reservoir level is raised to an elevation of 439 feet mean sea level (msl) by April 15 each year. Beginning on September 1, the reservoir level is then reduced until it reaches 437 feet msl by October 1. The level is then maintained at 437 feet msl until January 1, when it is reduced to 434.5 feet msl by February 1. At that time, the reservoir level is increased and the annual cycle is repeated. The licensee proposes to forgo the reservoir level reduction from 437 feet msl to 434.5 feet msl that would normally occur from January 1 to February 1, 2009, and would then refill the reservoir to the summer elevation of 439 feet msl by March 15, 2009, rather than waiting until April 15.
