[FR Doc. 08–1151 Filed 4–15–08; 3:30 pm] BILLING CODE 7050–01–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION [Docket No. 50–529] sroberts on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES Arizona Public Service Company; Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment to Facility Operating License, Proposed No Significant Hazards Consideration Determination, and Opportunity for a Hearing The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) is considering issuance of an amendment to Facility Operating License No. STN 50–529 to Arizona Public Service Company (APS or the licensee) for operation of the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station (Palo Verde), Unit 2, located in Maricopa County, Arizona. The proposed amendment in the licensee’s application dated April 10, 2008, would revise Technical Specification (TS) 3.5.5, Refueling Water Tank (RWT), to increase the minimum required RWT level indications and the corresponding borated water volumes in TS Figure 3.5.5–1, ‘‘Minimum Required RWT Volume,’’ by 3 percent. This change will ensure that there is adequate water volume available in the RWT to ensure that the engineered safety feature (ESF) pumps and the new containment recirculation sump strainers will meet their design functions during loss-ofcoolant accidents (LOCAs). This condition is exigent for Unit 2, as it entered into a refueling outage on March 29, 2008, and during that outage the new containment sump strainers will be installed as part of the licensee’s commitments related to NRC Generic Letter 2004–02, ‘‘Potential Impact of Debris Blockage on Emergency Recirculation during Design Basis Accidents at Pressurized-Water Reactors.’’ Without this amendment, the necessary modifications cannot be completed before startup from the refueling outage. Palo Verde is scheduled to restart on or about May 11, 2008. Before issuance of the proposed license amendment, the Commission will have made findings required by the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:08 Apr 16, 2008 Jkt 214001 Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act) and the Commission’s regulations. The Commission has made a proposed determination that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.91(a)(6) for amendments to be granted under exigent circumstances, the NRC staff must determine that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. Under the Commission’s regulations in 10 CFR 50.92, this means that operation of the facility in accordance with the proposed amendment would not (1) involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated; or (2) create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated; or (3) involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change would raise the RWT minimum level by 3% to ensure that there is adequate water volume available at the containment recirculation sumps for the limiting small break LOCA scenario for submergence of the new strainer designs that are being installed in Unit 2 in the spring 2008 outage. The new strainers are designed and tested to operate submerged at the start of recirculation actuation post-LOCA. This change ensures that the level of water at the strainers supports this assumption of the design. The RWT water volume is not an initiator of any accident previously evaluated. As a result, the probability of an accident previously evaluated is not affected. The proposed change does not alter or prevent the ability of structures, systems, and components from performing their intended function to mitigate the consequences of an initiating event within the assumed acceptance limits. The effect on containment flood level, equipment qualification, and containment sump pH [potential of hydrogen] remains within the limits assumed in the design and accident analyses. The calculated maximum containment flood level is based on the RWT water level associated with the bottom of the RWT overflow nozzle. This change does not revise the location of the RWT overflow nozzle and there is no change in the calculated maximum flood level. As a result, the proposed change has no impact on the qualification of equipment above the maximum containment flood level. For the same reason the impact of the proposed change on post-LOCA sump pH is bounded by the current analysis for post-LOCA sump PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20961 pH. In that analysis, the calculated minimum post-LOCA sump pH is based on the maximum RWT water level associated with the bottom of the RWT overflow nozzle. The maximum flood level is not affected by this change. In addition, the change is conservative with respect to the calculated maximum post-LOCA sump pH since it is increasing the minimum required RWT volume. The proposed change does not affect the source term, containment isolation, or radiological release assumptions used in evaluating the radiological consequences of an accident previously evaluated. Further, the proposed change does not increase the types or amounts of radioactive effluent that may be released offsite, nor significantly increase individual or cumulative occupational/public radiation exposures. The proposed change is consistent with the safety analysis assumptions and resultant consequences. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The change does not involve a physical alteration of the plant (i.e., no new or different components or physical changes are involved with this change) or a change in the methods governing normal plant operation. The change does not alter any assumptions made in the safety analysis. Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed change to raise the required RWT minimum water volume does not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting safety system settings or limiting conditions for operation are determined. The safety analysis acceptance criteria are not affected by this change. The proposed change will not result in plant operation in a configuration outside of the design basis. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. The Commission is seeking public comments on this proposed determination. Any comments received within 14 days after the date of publication of this notice will be considered in making any final determination. Normally, the Commission will not issue the amendment until the E:\FR\FM\17APN1.SGM 17APN1
