E7–24089 Filed 12–11–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7590–01–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION [Docket No. 50–341] Detroit Edison Company; FERMI 2; Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering issuance of an exemption from Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 74, section 74.19(c), for Facility Operating License No. NPF–43, issued to Detroit Edison Company (the licensee), for operation of Fermi 2, located in Monroe County, Michigan. Therefore, as required by 10 CFR 51.21, the NRC is issuing this environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact. PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70619 Environmental Assessment Identification of the Proposed ACTION: The proposed action would exempt the licensee from the requirement in 10 CFR 74.19(c) to conduct a physical inventory of all special nuclear material (SNM) at intervals not to exceed 12 months. Specifically, the request is for exemption from the physical inventory requirements for those fuel assemblies that are stored under the Holtec Overhead Platforms (HOPs) when the HOPs are installed in the spent fuel racks. The proposed action is in accordance with the licensee’s application dated April 27, 2007, as supplemented by letter dated November 9, 2007. The Need for the Proposed Action The proposed action would allow the licensee to not have to perform physical inventory of fuel assemblies below the HOPs when the HOPs are installed. Therefore, the licensee would not have to empty and remove the HOPs to perform the annual SNM physical inventory. Environmental Impacts of the Proposed Action The NRC has completed its safety evaluation of the proposed action and concludes that exempting the licensee from performing a physical inventory of fuel assemblies under the HOPs when the HOPs are installed is acceptable. The details of the staff’s safety evaluation will be provided in the exemption that will be issued as part of the letter to the licensee approving the exemption to the regulation. The proposed action will not significantly increase the probability or consequences of accidents. No changes are being made in the types of effluents that may be released off site. There is no significant increase in the amount of any effluent released off site. There is no significant increase in occupational or public radiation exposure. Therefore, there are no significant radiological environmental impacts associated with the proposed action. With regard to potential nonradiological impacts, the proposed action does not have a potential to affect any historic sites. It does not affect nonradiological plant effluents and has no other environmental impact. Therefore, there are no significant non-radiological environmental impacts associated with the proposed action. Accordingly, the NRC concludes that there are no significant environmental impacts associated with the proposed action. E:\FR\FM\12DEN1.SGM 12DEN1
