    k. Description of Request: The licensee requests Commission 
approval to temporarily reduce the surface elevation of Tioga Lake 
below the minimum pool elevation requirement of its project license. 
U.S. Forest Service Section 4(e) Condition No. 4 requires that the 
licensee maintain Tioga Lake within 2 feet of the spillway crest during 
dry years, from May 1st through September 30th. In order to accommodate 
the planned installation of geomembrane liners on the main and 
auxiliary dams, the licensee requests Commission approval to begin 
draining Tioga Lake on September 2, 2014, thereby reducing lake levels 
below the required elevation prior to September 30th. The licensee 
would maintain natural flows through the outlet valve through the 
duration of the proposed project.
