Utility Withdraws Plan for Limiting New Docks at Lake of the Ozarks

April 1, 2006 - Posted at 12:17 p.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Property owners along parts of the

Lake of the Ozarks no longer have to worry about whether they will

be prevented from installing new docks.

Ameren U-E said yesterday that it is dropping plans to limit new

docks on parts of the lake's shore.

Ameren was strongly criticized after it announced plans to

minimize development on 200 miles of the lake's eleven-hundred

miles of shoreline. Ameren wanted to set aside 200 miles of

shoreline with little or no development as protection zones for

habitat, scenery and other resources.

The plan was part of Ameren's application to renew its federal

permit for operating Bagnell Dam on the east end of Lake of the

Ozarks.
