Regulators revise order for buildings at Mo. lakeFederal regulators revise order for buildings at Lake of the Ozarks; structures may remain
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) ' Many homes built along Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks will be allowed to remain.
The Lake of the Ozarks is created by a dam owned by St. Louis-based utility Ameren Missouri.
Lakeside residents were concerned that they could lose their homes after the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said in July that many structures built too close to the lake may have to be removed.
In a new order issued Thursday, federal regulators said homes and structures built on lands with valid deeds or leases can remain.
The new order also required Ameren to redraw the boundaries for the hydroelectric project by June 2012 to remove land that it doesn't need. Homes built on that land would not be under the control of the federal commission.
