    Pursuant to 10 CFR Part 20 Subpart E, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission (NRC) is providing notice that it has terminated Northern 
States

[[Page 45833]]

Power Company, dba Xcel Energy, Materials License No. 22-08799-02 and 
released its Pathfinder site in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for 
unrestricted use. The licensee's request for an amendment to authorize 
decommissioning of its Pathfinder site was noticed in the Federal 
Register on August 4, 2004 (69 FR 47185). A notice of availability of 
an environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact 
related to this action was published in the Federal Register on May 25, 
2005 (70 FR 30150) and the license was amended to authorize 
decommissioning activities in accordance with a NRC-approved 
decommissioning plan.
    In a letter dated February 26, 2007, Xcel Energy provided final 
radiological status surveys to demonstrate that the site met the 
license termination criteria in 10 CFR Part 20 Subpart E. NRC staff 
conducted inspections and confirmatory surveys including the collection 
of samples and independent measurements of on-site soils and building 
surfaces.
    The NRC staff evaluated Xcel Energy's request and reviewed the 
results of the final radiological surveys. Based on those reviews, the 
staff determined that the site met the unrestricted release criteria in 
10 CFR Part 20 Subpart E. The staff prepared a Safety Evaluation Report 
(SER) to support its termination of the Northern States Power Company 
license for the Pathfinder site.
