Description of Request: The applicant requests a temporary variance to maintain the water elevation at the Blewett Falls Lake below the current license limits in order to allow for spillway modifications to take place at the Blewett Falls Dam. The current license generally allows the water level to fluctuate up to 6 feet below full pond, between an elevation of 172.1 and 178.1 feet National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29). When the flashboards on the spillway need to be replaced, an additional drawdown of 2 feet, to an elevation of 170.1 feet NGVD 29 is allowed. To complete the work on the spillway, the applicant is proposing to lower the Blewett Falls lake level up to an additional 1 foot below this maximum allowance, or 9 feet below full pond, to an elevation of 168.1 feet NGVD 29. The applicant proposes to maintain this lowered water elevation for a period beginning in October 2020 and lasting for 24 months, and states that maintaining the elevation at this level is needed to provide its contractor safe access to the spillway crest for the duration of the work associated with the spillway. During this time, the applicant states that the boat ramp at the Pee Dee Access area will remain usable, but the boat ramp at the Grassy Island Access area will be closed. l.
