Sunshine Act Meeting, 56498-56499 [05-19321]

Download as PDF 56498 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 186 / Tuesday, September 27, 2005 / Notices (EA) in support of this action in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR Part 51. The renewed license would also grant SLC exemptions from the financial assurance requirements for decommissioning contained in 10 CFR 30.32 and 30.35. Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate. II. EA Summary The purpose of the proposed action is to renew NRC Materials License No. 37– 00030–02 for characterization and other decommissioning activities through December 2007, and pursuant to 10 CFR 30.11, grant SLC exemptions from the financial assurance requirements for decommissioning contained in 10 CFR 30.32 and 30.35. The renewed license will require that the SLC submit work plans and health and safety plans to the NRC for approval prior to beginning other decommissioning activities at the Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania facility. The renewed license will also require that SLC develop a plan for the orderly shutdown of licensed activities and make prescribed monthly deposits into the decommissioning trust fund during the license renewal period in accordance with the Settlement Agreement between NRC, SLC and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, as approved by the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board on June 29, 2005. The NRC staff has prepared an EA in support of the license amendment. The licensee does not have sufficient financial assurance to complete remediation activities. The issuance of this amendment covers existing material already present on the site from past operations and does not authorize an increase in the amount of material authorized by the license. No changes are being made to the type or amount of effluents that may be released from the site, and no significant increase in public radiation exposure is expected. By renewing the license, NRC can also require the completion of certain actions to provide for an orderly cessation of licensed activities, and require SLC to cooperate with the Environmental Protection Agency in its evaluation and conduct of future remediation activities. The actions to be taken by the licensee are also in the public interest, and the exemption of specific financial assurance requirements until December 31, 2007 will not endanger life or property or common defense and security. Therefore, the NRC staff concluded that the action to renew License No. 37– 00030–02 and grant SLC exemptions VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:52 Sep 26, 2005 Jkt 205001 from the financial assurance requirements for decommissioning complies with 10 CFR Part 20 and 10 CFR 30.11. NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION III. Finding of No Significant Impact DATES: The staff has prepared the EA (summarized above) in support of the license amendment to renew the license and grant the exemptions. On the basis of the EA, the NRC has concluded that the environmental impacts from the action are expected to be insignificant and has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the action. Accordingly, a FONSI is appropriate.

[FR Doc. 05–19321 Filed 9–23–05; 9:52 am] BILLING CODE 7590–01–M NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION Biweekly Notice; Applications and Amendments to Facility Operating Licenses Involving No Significant Hazards Considerations I. Background Pursuant to section 189a. (2) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission or NRC staff) is publishing this regular biweekly notice. The Act requires the Commission publish notice of any amendments issued, or proposed to be issued and grants the Commission the authority to issue and make immediately effective any amendment to an operating license upon a determination by the Commission that such amendment involves no significant hazards consideration, notwithstanding the pendency before the Commission of a request for a hearing from any person. This biweekly notice includes all notices of amendments issued, or proposed to be issued from September 1, 2005, to September 15, 2005. The last biweekly notice was published on September 13, 2005 (70 FR 54085). Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendments to Facility Operating Licenses, Proposed No Significant Hazards Consideration Determination, and Opportunity for a Hearing The Commission has made a proposed determination that the VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:52 Sep 26, 2005 Jkt 205001 following amendment requests involve no significant hazards consideration. Under the Commission’s regulations in 10 CFR 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. The basis for this proposed determination for each amendment request is shown below. 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. Within 60 days after the date of publication of this notice, the licensee may file a request for a hearing with respect to issuance of the amendment to the subject facility operating license and any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding and who wishes to participate as a party in the proceeding must file a written request for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene. 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 60day period provided that its final determination is that the amendment involves no significant hazards consideration. In addition, the Commission may issue the amendment prior to the expiration of the 30-day comment period should circumstances change during the 30-day comment period such that failure to act in a timely way would result, for example in derating or shutdown of the facility. Should the Commission take action prior to the expiration of either the comment period or the notice period, it will publish in the Federal Register a notice of issuance. Should the Commission make a final No Significant Hazards Consideration Determination, any hearing will take place after issuance. The Commission expects that the need to take this action will occur very infrequently. Written comments may be submitted by mail to the Chief, Rules and Directives Branch, Division of Administrative Services, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001, and should cite the publication date and page number of this Federal PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56499 Register notice. Written comments may also be delivered to Room 6D22, Two White Flint North, 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Federal workdays. Copies of written comments received may be examined at the Commission’s Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area 01F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland. The filing of requests for a hearing and petitions for leave to intervene is discussed below. Within 60 days after the date of publication of this notice, the licensee may file a request for a hearing with respect to issuance of the amendment to the subject facility operating license and any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding and who wishes to participate as a party in the proceeding must file a written request for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene. Requests for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene shall be filed in accordance with the Commission’s ‘‘Rules of Practice for Domestic Licensing Proceedings’’ in 10 CFR part 2. Interested persons should consult a current copy of 10 CFR 2.309, which is available at the Commission’s PDR, located at One White Flint North, Public File Area 01F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland. Publicly available records will be accessible from the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System’s (ADAMS) Public Electronic Reading Room on the Internet at the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/ reading-rm/doc-collections/cfr/. If a request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene is filed within 60 days, the Commission or a presiding officer designated by the Commission or by the Chief Administrative Judge of the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel, will rule on the request and/or petition; and the Secretary or the Chief Administrative Judge of the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board will issue a notice of a hearing or an appropriate order. As required by 10 CFR 2.309, a petition for leave to intervene shall set forth with particularity the interest of the petitioner in the proceeding, and how that interest may be affected by the results of the proceeding. The petition should specifically explain the reasons why intervention should be permitted with particular reference to the following general requirements: (1) the name, address, and telephone number of the requestor or petitioner; (2) the nature of the requestor’s/petitioner’s right under the Act to be made a party to the proceeding; (3) the nature and extent of the requestor’s/petitioner’s E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1
