    Habitat
    The Applicants propose to implement conservation measures for benefit of the endangered ovate clubshell mussel (Pleurobema perovatum) and southern clubshell mussel (Pleurobema decisum), and the threatened fine-lined pocketbook mussel (Lampsilis altilis), by repairing subsidence features in and restoring a minimum flow to Chewacla Creek at the base of Lake Ogletree Dam in Auburn, Lee County, AlabamaThe primary direct effect of the SHA is to rehydrate about 51,600 linear feet, almost ten miles, of the low flow channel immediately downstream of Lake Ogletree Dam to the vicinity of Martin Marrietta�s limestone quarry. A second primary benefit is to reduce the movement of above ground streamflow to below ground through relatively recent �potholes.� (e.g., by fixing the subsidence features within the streambed). Discharges of no less than 2 MGD, and no less than 0.4 MGD under exceptional circumstances, will be maintained in the channel year-round.
