ACTION: Issuance of Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for License Amendment. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES AGENCY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William Snell, Senior Health Physicist, Decommissioning Branch, Division of Nuclear Materials Safety, Region III, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 2443 Warrenville Road, Lisle, Illinois VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:09 Oct 10, 2007 Jkt 214001 60532; telephone: (630) 829–9871; fax number: (630) 515–1259; or by e-mail at wgs@nrc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to Byproduct Materials License No. 24– 13365–01. This license is held by ABC Laboratories (the Licensee), for facilities, located at 7200 E. ABC Lane, Columbia, Missouri. Issuance of the amendment would authorize release of Buildings C and G for unrestricted use. The Licensee requested this action in a letter dated June 5, 2007 (ADAMS Accession No. ML071630523). The NRC has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this proposed action in accordance with the requirements of Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 51 (10 CFR Part 51). Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate with respect to the proposed action. The amendment will be issued to the Licensee following the publication of this FONSI and EA in the Federal Register. II. Environmental Assessment Identification of Proposed Action The proposed action would approve the Licensee’s June 5, 2007 license amendment request, resulting in release of Buildings C and G for unrestricted use. License No. 24–13365–01 was issued on August 5, 1969, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 30, and has been amended periodically since that time. This license authorized the Licensee to use byproduct materials for activities involving research and development, possession, use, processing, and packaging incident to manufacture of radiochemicals, storage prior to distribution, and interim storage of radioactive waste prior to disposal. Buildings C and G are situated on a 56 acre site and are 2 of 13 buildings. Building C was constructed in 1976 as a wood frame building on a concrete slab which was later converted to a metal sided building, and was used for animal studies mainly using carbon-14 or tritium tagged materials. Building G was constructed in 1980 as a wood frame building with steel roof on a concrete slab and was used to store primarily carbon-14 and tritium radioactive waste prior to disposal. The site is located in a mixed residential, agricultural and commercial area. The licensee ceased using licensed materials in Building C in March 2006 and Building G in July 2006 and PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57967 initiated surveys and decontamination of the buildings. Based on the Licensee’s historical knowledge of the site and the conditions of the Facility, the Licensee determined that only routine decontamination activities, in accordance with their NRC-approved, operating radiation safety procedures, were required. The Licensee was not required to submit a decommissioning plan to the NRC because worker cleanup activities and procedures are consistent with those approved for routine operations. The Licensee conducted surveys of Building C in June 2006 and Building G in September 2006 and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that they meet the criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20 for unrestricted release. Need for the Proposed Action The Licensee has ceased conducting licensed activities in Buildings C and G, and seeks the unrestricted use of Buildings C and G. Environmental Impacts of the Proposed Action The historical review of licensed activities conducted in Buildings C and G shows that such activities involved use of the following radionuclides with half-lives greater than 120 days: hydrogen-3 and carbon-14. Prior to performing the final status survey, the Licensee conducted decontamination activities, as necessary, in the areas of Buildings C and G affected by these radionuclides. The Licensee completed final status surveys on Building C on June 6, 2006, and on Building G on September 22, 2006. These surveys covered all areas of Building C and Building G. The final status survey report was attached to the Licensee’s amendment request dated June 5, 2007. The Licensee elected to demonstrate compliance with the radiological criteria for unrestricted release as specified in 10 CFR 20.1402 using the screening approach described in NUREG–1757, ‘‘Consolidated NMSS Decommissioning Guidance,’’ Volume 2. The Licensee used the radionuclidespecific derived concentration guideline levels (DCGLs), developed there by the NRC, which comply with the dose criterion in 10 CFR 20.1402. These DCGLs define the maximum amount of residual radioactivity on building surfaces, equipment, and materials, and in soils, that will satisfy the NRC requirements in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20 for unrestricted release. The NRC conducted independent radiological surveys of the Buildings C and G and identified no radiological contamination in Building C in excess E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1
