Ameren Missouri Offers Shoreline Hotline for Lake Communities and Property Owner’s Questions
Recent FERC Order on Shoreline Management Plan Causes Concerns

Ameren Missouri encourages local communities and property owners in the Lake of the Ozarks area to contact the Shoreline Management Office – phone: 573.365.9203; email: lake@ameren.com – with their questions and concerns related to the order recently issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on the Shoreline Management Plan.

"We recognize local communities and property owners in the Lake of the Ozarks area are very concerned about the order recently issued by FERC regarding our Shoreline Management Plan,” says Jeff Green, Shoreline supervisor. “As always, we are available to address their concerns.”

The new FERC order clarifies the agency’s position regarding structures within the Project Boundary – an elevation-based, strip of land surrounding the Lake’s shoreline. FERC’s recent order came in response to a petition filed by Ameren Missouri Aug. 26, seeking reconsideration of certain parts of FERC’s July 26 order. Ameren Missouri’s petition cited concerns with the deadlines for compliance in the original FERC order and the potential impact on privately-owned structures located within the Project Boundary.

"Any home owner that believes their property is in the Project Boundary can rest assured no adverse action will be taken while we are working to resolve the issue,” notes Green.
