Description of Request: In its application, GRDA requests a permanent amendment of the project’s Article 401 reservoir elevation rule curve to go into effect August 16, 2016, and remain in effect through the remaining term of the project license. GRDA requests, if a permanent amendment cannot be reviewed by the Commission by August 16, 2016, that a temporary variance for August 16 through October 31, 2016 only be considered while the Commission continues to process its request for a permanent amendment. This notice only seeks comments, motions to intervene, and protests on GRDA’s request for a temporary variance for the period from August 16 through October 31, 2016. GRDA indicates that it seeks the rule curve change to reduce the risk of vessel groundings at Grand Lake in late summer, improve recreation during a peak recreation season, better balance competing stakeholder interests, and provide additional water storage so that, in the event of drought, water would be available for release to aid in maintaining water quality in the river downstream. Under GRDA’s proposal, between August 16 and September 15, the reservoir would be maintained at elevation 743 feet Pensacola Datum (PD), which is up to two feet higher than VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:33 Jul 13, 2016 Jkt 238001 the current rule curve. Between September 16 and September 30, the elevation would be lowered from 743 to 742 feet PD. Between October 1 and October 31, the reservoir would be maintained at elevation 742 feet PD, which is up to one foot higher than the current rule curve. After October 31, reservoir elevations would follow the project’s current rule curve. With its application, GRDA includes a Storm Adaptive Management Plan that would be followed to address high water conditions upstream and downstream of Grand Lake during major precipitation events in the river basin. GRDA also includes a Drought Adaptive Management Plan that would be followed to determine project operation, including deviations from the rule curve elevations, to allow releases for maintenance of downstream water quality and reliable operation of GRDA’s downstream Salina Pumped Storage Project if certain drought conditions occur. l.
