Description of Application: The licensee proposes to amend the water surface elevation requirement of the impoundment set forth in article 402 of the license for the Three Rivers Project. Specifically, the licensee proposes to operate with the impoundment elevation at 798 feet National Geodetic Vertical Datum 1929 (NGVD29) and any elevation fluctuation shall not exceed 0.25 foot. The current impoundment elevation requirement under article 402 of the license is 797 feet NGVD29 ± 0.25 foot. However, the licensee states in its amendment application that at the time of the license application and request for water quality certification, the licensee referred to the incorrect datum at some point. Therefore, the reservoir level license requirement referenced 797 feet NGVD29 instead of the historic operating level of 798 feet NGVD29, the elevation prior to license issuance. The licensee is attempting to correct the datum error with an amendment to its license, but since the project has historically operated at an impoundment water surface elevation of 798 feet NGVD29, no actual change in project operation is proposed. l. Locations of the Application: A copy of the application 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.
