Before Administrative Judges: Alan S. Rosenthal, Chairman; Dr. Paul B. Abramson, Dr. Richard F. Cole. This Atomic Safety and Licensing Board hereby gives notice that, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 2, Subpart L, it will convene an evidentiary hearing on October 22, 2007 to receive testimony and exhibits concerning the adequacy of the Field Sampling Plan (FSP) in the application submitted by the Department of the Army (Licensee) for an amendment to its NRC materials license (License No. SUB–1435) for an alternate decommissioning schedule. See 10 CFR 40.42(g)(2).

It now seeks a license amendment that would provide an alternate schedule (i.e., a five-year additional period) for the submittal of a decommissioning plan for that site. Such a plan is required because there is currently amassed on the JPG site approximately 70,000 kilograms of DU munitions. This Board has found one contention presented by Save the Valley, Inc. (Intervenor) regarding the alternate decommissioning schedule to satisfy the admissibility requirements imposed by 10 CFR 2.309(f)(1). LBP–06–6, 63 NRC 167 183–85 (2006). That contention asserts (id. at 183): As filed, the FSP is not properly designed to obtain all the verifiable data required for reliable dose modeling and accurate assessment of the effects on exposure pathways of meteorological, geological, hydrological, animal, and human features specific to the JPG site and its surrounding area. On December 20, 2006 and May 1, 2007, the Board rejected Intervenor’s other contentions as inadmissable. See LBP–06–27, 64 NRC 438 (2006); LBP– 07–07, 65 NRCl(slip op.) (2007). A.

Atomic Safety and Licensing Board; in the Matter of: U.S. Army 
(Jefferson Proving Ground Site); Notice of Hearing (Application for a 
License Amendment)

September 20, 2007.
Before Administrative Judges: Alan S. Rosenthal, Chairman; Dr. Paul 
B. Abramson, Dr. Richard F. Cole.

    This Atomic Safety and Licensing Board hereby gives notice that, 
pursuant to 10 CFR Part 2, Subpart L, it will convene an evidentiary 
hearing on October 22, 2007 to receive testimony and exhibits 
concerning the adequacy of the Field Sampling Plan (FSP) in the 
application submitted by the Department of the Army (Licensee) for an 
amendment to its NRC materials license (License No. SUB-1435) for an 
alternate decommissioning schedule. See 10 CFR 40.42(g)(2).
    Between 1983 and 1994, under the auspices of that license, the 
Licensee

[[Page 55835]]

conducted accuracy testing of depleted uranium (DU) tank penetration 
rounds at its Jefferson Proving Ground site located in Madison, 
Indiana. It now seeks a license amendment that would provide an 
alternate schedule (i.e., a five-year additional period) for the 
submittal of a decommissioning plan for that site. Such a plan is 
required because there is currently amassed on the JPG site 
approximately 70,000 kilograms of DU munitions.
    This Board has found one contention presented by Save the Valley, 
Inc. (Intervenor) regarding the alternate decommissioning schedule to 
satisfy the admissibility requirements imposed by 10 CFR 2.309(f)(1). 
LBP-06-6, 63 NRC 167 183-85 (2006). That contention asserts (id. at 
183):

    As filed, the FSP is not properly designed to obtain all the 
verifiable data required for reliable dose modeling and accurate 
assessment of the effects on exposure pathways of meteorological, 
geological, hydrological, animal, and human features specific to the 
JPG site and its surrounding area.

    On December 20, 2006 and May 1, 2007, the Board rejected 
Intervenor's other contentions as inadmissable. See LBP-06-27, 64 NRC 
438 (2006); LBP-07-07, 65 NRC--(slip op.) (2007).
