Ameren Files Plan to Resolve Shoreline Issue
ST. LOUIS - Ameren Missouri has filed a shoreline management plan that the utility says will ensure that most of the 1,600 homes along the Lake of the Ozarks shoreline are not threatened with removal.
Ameren said Wednesday the plan, filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a day earlier, revises the shoreline boundary so that most of the homes are not encroaching onto land that is part of Ameren's Bagnell Dam hydroelectric project.
Concerns were raised in July when FERC ordered that structures may need to be removed if they encroach onto the project's land.
The plan confirms Ameren's proposal released in mid-December that calls for a lake-wide boundary at 662 feet above sea level, and in some cases lower, for existing dwellings.
FERC must still approve the plan.
