Ameren Missouri officials are pleased that the FERC approved provisions in the company's shoreline boundary plan for Lake of the Ozarks on June 5. Ameren Missouri filed the proposal in Jan. 2012 - months ahead of FERC’s deadline of June 2012. FERC's decision resolves the issue of dwelling encroachments within the Project Boundary at the Lake.
Under Ameren Missouri's approved plan, the boundary has been lowered to an elevation of 662’ plus carving out below 662’ for existing dwellings and commercial structures. We are now moving forward with filing Estoppel Certificates in the Recorder of Deeds Office(s) of Camden, Miller, Benton and Morgan counties. The document clarifies ownership and confirms that structures now outside the boundary are not in jeopardy.
“By working and collaborating with property owners, agencies and other key stakeholders, we developed and presented a viable solution to FERC,” said Jeff Green, supervisor of Shoreline Management. “We are very happy with the decision to allow us to lower the boundary. This decision provides closure to the matter and allows us to continue being a good steward of the Lake of the Ozarks."
In addition to filing Estoppel Certificates, Ameren Missouri is helping property owners understand the new plan, which benefits the Lake of the Ozarks for years to come.
