The NRC has terminated the license of the decommissioned MCZPR, which was in the Leo Engineering Building of Manhattan College, Riverdale, New York, and has released the site for unrestricted use. The licensee requested termination of the license in a letter to NRC dated February 3, 2005. The MCZPR, a 0.1 watt swimming pool reactor, was constructed in 1964 and operated under License No. R–94. The reactor was permanently shut down in 1995. On March 23, 1999, NRC approved the decommissioning plan (DP) dated July 21, 1998, by License Amendment No. 12. A Notice and Solicitation of Comments Pursuant to 10 CFR 20.1405 and 10 CFR 50.82(b)(5) Concerning Proposed Action to Decommission Manhattan College Zero Power Research Reactor appeared in the Federal Register on February 12, 1999 (64 FR 7214). The staff considered all comments received during the review of the MCZPR decommissioning plan. The NRC completed its review of the December 2004 final status survey report (FSSR) for the Reactor Facility at Manhattan College School of Engineering. The licensee submitted the report to NRC by letter dated February 3, 2005. The report documented the level of residual radioactivity remaining at the facility and stated that compliance with the criteria as approved in the NRC-approved DP had been demonstrated. Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(b)(6), the NRC staff concluded that the decommissioning has been performed in accordance with the approved DP and that the final terminal radiation survey and associated documentation demonstrate that the facility and site are suitable for release in accordance with the criteria in the NRC-approved DP. Furthermore, on the basis of the decommissioning activities carried out by MC, the NRC’s review of the licensee’s FSSR, the results of NRC’s inspections conducted at MC, and the results of NRC’s confirmatory surveys, the NRC has concluded that the E:\FR\FM\31OCN1.SGM 31OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 209 / Monday, October 31, 2005 / Notices decommissioning process is complete and the facility and site are suitable to be released for unrestricted use.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to Morphochem, Inc. for Materials License No. 29– 30442–01, to authorize release of its facility in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey for unrestricted use. NRC has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this action in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR part 51. 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 action is to authorize the release of the licensee’s Monmouth Junction, New Jersey facility for unrestricted use. Morphochem, Inc. was authorized by NRC from 1998 to use radioactive materials for research and development purposes at the site. On August 8, 2005, Morphochem, Inc. requested that NRC release the facility for unrestricted use. Morphochem, Inc. has conducted surveys of the facility and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that the site meets the license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR part 20 for unrestricted use. The NRC staff has prepared an EA in support of the license amendment. The facility was remediated and surveyed prior to the licensee requesting the license amendment. The NRC staff has reviewed the information and final status survey submitted by Morphochem, Inc. Based on its review, the staff has determined that there are no additional remediation activities necessary to complete the proposed action. Therefore, the staff considered the impact of the residual radioactivity at the facility and concluded that since the residual radioactivity meets the requirements in Subpart E of 10 CFR part 20, a Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate. III. Finding of No Significant Impact The staff has prepared the EA (summarized above) in support of the license amendment to terminate the license and release the facility for unrestricted use. The NRC staff has evaluated Morphochem, Inc.’s request and the results of the surveys and has concluded that the completed action complies with the criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR part 20. The staff has found that the radiological environmental PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62351 impacts from the action are bounded by the impacts evaluated by NUREG–1496, Volumes 1–3, ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRC-Licensed Facilities’’ [ML042310492, ML042320379 and ML042330385]. Additionally, no non-radiological or cumulative impacts were identified. On the basis of the EA, the NRC has concluded that there are no significant environmental impacts from the proposed action and has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the action. IV. Further Information Documents related to this action, including the application for the license amendment and supporting documentation, are available electronically at the NRC’s Electronic Reading Room at http://www.nrc.gov/ reading-rm/adams.html.

Manhattan College; (Manhattan College Zero Power Reactor); Notice 
of Approval of Decommissioning Plan and Notice of License Termination

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is noticing the 
termination of Facility Operating License No. R-97 for the Manhattan 
College (MC) Zero Power Reactor (MCZPR).
    The NRC has terminated the license of the decommissioned MCZPR, 
which was in the Leo Engineering Building of Manhattan College, 
Riverdale, New York, and has released the site for unrestricted use. 
The licensee requested termination of the license in a letter to NRC 
dated February 3, 2005. The MCZPR, a 0.1 watt swimming pool reactor, 
was constructed in 1964 and operated under License No. R-94. The 
reactor was permanently shut down in 1995. On March 23, 1999, NRC 
approved the decommissioning plan (DP) dated July 21, 1998, by License 
Amendment No. 12.
    A Notice and Solicitation of Comments Pursuant to 10 CFR 20.1405 
and 10 CFR 50.82(b)(5) Concerning Proposed Action to Decommission 
Manhattan College Zero Power Research Reactor appeared in the Federal 
Register on February 12, 1999 (64 FR 7214). The staff considered all 
comments received during the review of the MCZPR decommissioning plan.
    The NRC completed its review of the December 2004 final status 
survey report (FSSR) for the Reactor Facility at Manhattan College 
School of Engineering. The licensee submitted the report to NRC by 
letter dated February 3, 2005. The report documented the level of 
residual radioactivity remaining at the facility and stated that 
compliance with the criteria as approved in the NRC-approved DP had 
been demonstrated.
    Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(b)(6), the NRC staff concluded that the 
decommissioning has been performed in accordance with the approved DP 
and that the final terminal radiation survey and associated 
documentation demonstrate that the facility and site are suitable for 
release in accordance with the criteria in the NRC-approved DP. 
Furthermore, on the basis of the decommissioning activities carried out 
by MC, the NRC's review of the licensee's FSSR, the results of NRC's 
inspections conducted at MC, and the results of NRC's confirmatory 
surveys, the NRC has concluded that the

[[Page 62351]]

decommissioning process is complete and the facility and site are 
suitable to be released for unrestricted use. Based on the NRC staff's 
conclusions, Facility Operating License No. R-94 is terminated.
    For further details, see the licensee's application for 
decommissioning dated December 18, 1997, July 21, October 29, and 
November 10, 1998, and January 6, 1999; License Amendment No. 12 to 
Facility Operating License No. R-94; the licensee's February 3, 2005, 
request for license termination; the December 2004 FSSR for the Reactor 
Facility at the Manhattan College School of Engineering, submitted to 
NRC by letter dated February 3, 2005 and NRC Inspection Report 50-199/
2005-201, dated July 15, 2005. Documents may be examined, and/or copied 
for a fee, at the NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), at One White Flint 
North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland. 
Publicly available records for MC dated after January 30, 2000, will be 
accessible electronically from the Agencywide Documents Access and 
Management System (ADAMS) Public Electronic Reading Room on the 
Internet at the NRC Web site http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html.
