Customer's higher scheduling priority, then the Customer's

priority shall be prorated between or among the affected pools.


(k) MRT shall redetermine the priority of each Customer

and Pool Operator under Section 8.2 and reallocate capacity

hereunder on a periodic basis as is necessary for MRT to

recognize the priority of new Customers and Pool Operators or

Section 8.2 herein, from lowest to highest priority. MRT shall

pursuant to the terms and conditions of Rate Schedule NNT, MRT

is required to interrupt a lower priority service, MRT shall

notify any Customer whose service is to be interrupted as soon as

is reasonably practicable.

and Conditions.
