BOYCE HYDRO PROPOSES EARLY DRAWDOWN OF WIXOM LAKE
Boyce Hydro Power, LLC has requested permission from FERC to lower Wixom Lake 3’-4’ starting Nov. 27, almost 3 weeks earlier than the usual date of Dec. 15. The stated purpose for lowering the lake is to allow soil boring samples to be taken upstream of the dam, in preparation for constructing an auxiliary spillway.
FERC has denied the request for this early drawdown, until Boyce does the following:
1. The elevation profile of the existing lake bottom should be measured or sounded where the borings are to be positioned. Drawings should be provided of the upstream reservoir profile and the locations of the soil borings.
2. A soil boring plan was not included in the submittal and must be provided. Boyce's consultant should reference FERC's "Guidelines for Drilling in and near Embankment Dams and their Foundations” to help develop the plan.
3. A letter should be developed to inform the public of the lowering and submitted for FERC review. A list of how and who will be notified of the reservoir lowering should be included. This letter or notice should be issued following FERC approval of the drawdown.
We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updated information when available.
