PPL Corporation Analyst Notes 

On April 2, 2014, PPL Corporation (PPL) announced that it will manage the power generation at the hydroelectric plant to accommodate springtime fishing on the Lackawaxen River, as part of its support of public recreation around Lake Wallenpaupack. Paul Canevari, PPL's Pocono region Community Relations Director, said, "For the safety of anglers and as part of our federal operating license, we will suspend generation on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays starting April 12 - the first day of trout season - through June 14, and also on Fridays during that period for the three hours before and one hour after sunset." The Company said that the schedule will be only changed if the power plant is needed to control lake elevation during heavy inflows or drought conditions, for emergency power generation, or to regulate the water temperature in the Lackawaxen River. According to PPL, it has a program that manages power generation from its hydroelectric plant in Lake Wallenpaupack to help keep downstream water temperature between river miles 10 and 4, below 75 degrees, providing a more beneficial habitat for wild trout and trout stocked by the commission.
