DPR–26 and DPR–64; EA–07–189] In the Matter of Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc; Indian Point Nuclear Generating Unit Nos. 2 and 3; Order Modifying License (Effective Immediately) I Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (Licensee) is the holder of Facility Operating License Nos. DPR–26 and DPR–64 issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) pursuant to 10 CFR Part 50. The licenses authorize the operation of Indian Point Nuclear Generating Unit Nos. 2 and 3, in accordance with the conditions specified therein. The facilities are located on the Licensee’s site in Buchanan, New York. II On April 23, 2007, the NRC issued to Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (Entergy) a Notice of Violation (NOV) and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty for a violation involving the failure to meet the requirements of a Confirmatory Order (EA–05–190) that was issued to Entergy on January 31, 2006. On January 23, 2007, the NRC granted Entergy’s request, provided in a letter dated January 11, 2007, to extend the full implementation date until April 15, 2007. The NRC issued the NOV and Proposed Civil Penalty after Entergy informed the NRC that the ‘‘radio only activation’’ feature of the emergency notification system (ENS) did not meet its test acceptance criteria, resulting in PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the ENS not being fully operable by April 15, 2007, the date it was required to be operable. Entergy responded to the NOV on May 23, 2007, and committed to declaring the new ENS operable by August 24, 2007. In its response, Entergy admitted to the violation of the Confirmatory Order, identified the apparent causes of the violation, and described corrective actions that were taken or planned to correct the violation. Subsequent to the Licensee’s May 23, 2007, letter, the NRC held a public meeting with Entergy officials on July 9, 2007, to clarify Entergy’s actions to comply with the Confirmatory Order, particularly with respect to ensuring that the new ENS met the applicable Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regulations, as well as to ensure that any specific county needs were identified and addressed prior to Entergy declaring the new ENS operable. The NRC has evaluated Entergy’s response to the NOV and the additional information gathered during the July 9, 2007, public meeting. The NRC has determined that additional actions are needed to ensure that the new ENS with backup power supply capability is operable by August 24, 2007, as committed to in Entergy’s May 23, 2007 letter. These actions include: Completing the outstanding requirements delineated in the aforementioned Confirmatory Order issued January 31, 2006, as modified herein; implementing those measures necessary for FEMA to accept the new ENS as the primary ENS for alerting the public by August 24, 2007; and, completing the necessary software and procedure upgrades and training of county personnel responsible for actuation of the system. III Adequate backup power for the ENS, as required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Act) (see 42 U.S.C. 2210 et seq.) Section 651(b), requires that: (a) The backup power supply for the Public Alerting System (PAS) must meet commonly-applicable standards, such as National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 1221, Standard for the Installation, Maintenance, and Use of Emergency Communications Systems (2002) and Underwriters Laboratory (UL) 2017, Section 58.2; (b) each PAS and PAS Alerting Appliance (PASAA) must receive adequate power to perform their intended functions such that backup power is sufficient to allow operation in standby mode for a minimum of 24 hours and in alert mode for a minimum of 15 minutes; (c) E:\FR\FM\06AUN1.SGM 06AUN1
