After months of confusion and controversy, Ameren Missouri has submitted its plan to redraw the project boundry for the Lake of the Ozarks shoreline managenment plan, excluding nearly 1,600 homes and other structures threatened with removal. Ameren’s Jeff Green says the revised project boundry plan was formally filed on Tuesday with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission:
The proposed plan, which calls for a lake-wide project boundry of 662 feet elevation, would remove more than 28,000 acres of land around the lake from FERC’s jurisdiction, ensuring the homes, businesses, docks, gazebos and other strructures can remain in place.
FERC has an unspecified amount of time to make a final decision on the plan. Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer has sent a letter to the chairman of FERC, seeking an expedited review of Ameren’s proposal.
