SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Introduction On September 22, 2003, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Staff received a request from the Army for a license amendment that would create a 5-year renewable possession-only license (5-year POLA) for its JPG site. On October 28, 2003, the NRC Staff published a Notice of Consideration of Amendment Request for the Jefferson Proving Ground Site and Opportunity for a Hearing in the Federal Register. On May 25, 2005, the Army submitted a superseding license amendment request for an alternate schedule (alternate schedule request) for decommissioning JPG. On June 16, 2005, the Staff accepted the alternate schedule request for review. On June 27, 2005, the Staff published A Notice of Consideration of Amendment Request for an Alternate Decommissioning Schedule and Opportunity to Request a Hearing in the Federal Register. On July 19, 2005, the Army formally withdrew its request for a 5-year POLA for JPG. Thus, the Staff has discontinued its review of the 5-year POLA.

The proposed amendment would allow the licensee to utilize a probabilistic methodology to determine the contribution to main steamline break (MSLB) leakage rates for the oncethrough steam generator (OTSG) from the tube end crack (TEC) alternate repair criteria (ARC) described in CR–3 Improved Technical Specification (ITS) 5.6.2.10.2.f. This amendment revision involves a change to ITS 5.6.2.10.2.f to incorporate the basis of the proposed probabilistic methodology and the method and technical justification for projecting the TEC leakage that may develop during the next operating cycle following each inservice inspection of the CR–3 OTSGs. This notice supercedes the previous notice dated March 15, 2005 (70 FR 12746). Before issuance of the proposed license amendment, the Commission will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s regulations. The Commission has made a proposed determination that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. Under the Commission’s regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Section 50.92, this means that operation of the facility in accordance with the proposed amendment would not (1) involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated; or (2) create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated; or (3) involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. This LAR [license amendment request] proposes to change the method to determine the projected MSLB leakage rates for TEC. Potential leakage from OTSG tubes, including leakage contribution from TEC, is bounded by the MSLB evaluation presented in the CR– 3 Final Safety Analysis Report (FSAR) and testing performed during the development of Topical Report BAW–2346P, Revision 0. The inspection required by the ARC will continue to be performed as required by CR–3 ITS 5.6.2.10. This inspection provides continuous monitoring of tubes with TEC indications remaining in service, and ensures that degradation of new tubes containing TEC indications is detected. The proposed change PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in method to determine MSLB leakage rates for TEC and the addition of a method to project the TEC leakage that may develop during the next operating cycle do not change any accident initiators. 2. Does not create the possibility of a new or different type of accident from any accident previously evaluated. This LAR proposes to change the method to determine the projected MSLB leakage rates for TEC and the addition of a method to project the TEC leakage that may develop during the next operating cycle. The changes introduce no new failure modes or accident scenarios. The proposed changes do not change the assumptions made in Topical Report BAW–2346P, Revision 0, which demonstrated structural and leakage integrity for all normal operating and accident conditions for CR–3. The addition of a method to project the TEC leakage provides an additional means to monitor the initiation of TEC. The design and operational characteristics of the OTSGs are not impacted by the use of a probabilistic methodology to determine MSLB leakage rates. 3. Does not involve a significant reduction in the margin of safety. This LAR proposes to change the method to determine the projected MSLB leakage rates for TEC and the addition of a method to project the TEC leakage that may develop during the next operating cycle. The resulting leakage estimates will be lower than the estimates from the old method. However, the estimates from the proposed method will be more realistic and do not impact the acceptance criteria. The methodology relies on the same accident analyses described in Topical Report BAW–2346P, Revision 0, and License Amendment Request #249, Revision 0, and utilizes the same leakage test data and leakage limit. The CR–3 FSAR analyzed accident scenarios are not affected by the change and remain bounding. The limits established in CR–3 ITS 3.4.12 and 5.6.2.10.2.f have not been changed. The addition of a method to project the TEC leakage that may develop during the next operating cycle provides an additional means to monitor the initiation of TEC. Therefore, the proposed change does not reduce the margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. The Commission is seeking public comments on this proposed determination. Any comments received within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice will be considered in making any final determination. Normally, the Commission will not issue the amendment until the expiration of 60 days after the date of publication of this notice. The Commission may issue the license amendment before expiration of the 60- E:\FR\FM\26AUN1.SGM 26AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    On September 22, 2003, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 
Staff received a request from the Army for a license amendment that 
would create a 5-year renewable possession-only license (5-year POLA) 
for its JPG site. On October 28, 2003, the NRC Staff published a Notice 
of Consideration of Amendment Request for the Jefferson Proving Ground 
Site and Opportunity for a Hearing in the Federal Register. On May 25, 
2005, the Army submitted a superseding license amendment request for an 
alternate schedule (alternate schedule request) for decommissioning 
JPG. On June 16, 2005, the Staff accepted the alternate schedule 
request for review. On June 27, 2005, the Staff published A Notice of 
Consideration of Amendment Request for an Alternate Decommissioning 
Schedule and Opportunity to Request a Hearing in the Federal Register. 
On July 19, 2005, the Army formally withdrew its request for a 5-year 
POLA for JPG. Thus, the Staff has discontinued its review of the 5-year 
POLA.
