the site cleanup meets the unrestricted release dose criteria in 10 CFR 
20.1402, and concludes that the site is suitable for release for 
unrestricted use. Accordingly, the license for the Cabot Reading, PA 
site is being terminated. The staff prepared a Safety Evaluation Report 
(SER) to support this action.
