Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 103 / Wednesday, May 28, 2008 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Federal Register on October 20, 1995 (60 FR 54260). The public scoping meeting was held in Gore, Oklahoma on November 15, 1995. Following the NRC’s 2002 reclassification of waste at the SFC site as 11e.(2) byproduct material and transfer of the NRC regulatory oversight to Appendix A of Part 40, NRC held a rescoping meeting on May 13, 2003 (68 FR 20033). The Rescoping Summary Report was issued in November 2003 (ADAMS Accession No.: ML033170349). The NRC staff prepared and issued a Draft EIS in September 2007; notice of the availability of the Draft EIS appeared in the Federal Register on September 21, 2007 (72 FR 54080). Public comments on the Draft EIS were accepted by the NRC staff until November 5, 2007. The NRC staff’s responses to these comments and copies of the submitted comments are provided in appendices to the Final EIS. The Final EIS describes the proposed action and reasonable alternatives to the proposed action, including the noaction alternative, and describes the proposed mitigation measures. The NRC staff assesses the impacts of the proposed action and it’s alternative on public and occupational health, air quality, water resources, waste management, geology and soils, noise, ecology resources, land use, transportation, historical and cultural resources, visual and scenic resources, socioeconomics, accidents and environmental justice. Additionally, the Final EIS analyzes and compares the costs and benefits of the proposed action. After weighing the impacts, costs, and benefits of the proposed action and comparing alternatives, the NRC staff, in accordance with 10 CFR 51.91(d), sets forth its final NEPA recommendation regarding the proposed action. The NRC staff recommends that the proposed action be approved, unless safety issues mandate otherwise. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 21st day of May, 2008. For the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Scott C. Flanders, Deputy Director, Environmental Protection and Performance Assessment Directorate, Division of Waste Management and Environmental Protection, Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs.

[FR Doc. 08–1303 Filed 5–23–08; 10:44 am] BILLING CODE 7590–01–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION Notice of Issuance of Regulatory Guide Nuclear Regulatory Commission. ACTION: Issuance, Availability of Regulatory Guide 1.45, Revision 1. AGENCY: John Ridgely, Regulatory Guide Development Branch, Division of Engineering, Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001, telephone (301) 415–6555 or e-mail to John.Ridgely@nrc.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 1.45, ‘‘Guidance on Monitoring and Responding to Reactor Coolant System Leakage,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide DG–1173. General Design Criterion (GDC) 14, ‘‘Reactor Coolant Pressure Boundary,’’ as set forth in Appendix A, ‘‘General Design Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ to Title 10, Part 50, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR part 50), ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ requires that the reactor coolant pressure boundary (RCPB) shall be designed, fabricated, erected, and tested so as to have an extremely low probability of abnormal leakage, of rapidly propagating failure, and of gross rupture. As a result, these nuclear components are normally designed to the criteria established in Section III of VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:31 May 27, 2008 Jkt 214001 the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code promulgated by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. During the design phase, degradationresistant materials are normally specified for reactor coolant system (RCS) components. However, materials can degrade as a result of the complex interaction of the materials, the stresses they encounter, and the normal and upset operating environments in which they are used. Such material degradation could lead to the leakage of the reactor coolant. Consequently, GDC 30, ‘‘Quality of Reactor Coolant Pressure Boundary,’’ of Appendix A to 10 CFR Part 50 requires that means shall be provided for detecting and, to the extent practical, identifying the location of the source of reactor coolant leakage. Additionally, 10 CFR 50.55a, ‘‘Codes and Standards,’’ requires the performance of inservice inspection and testing of nuclear power plant components. Thus, the concept of defense-in-depth is used to provide assurance that structural integrity of the RCPB is maintained. This guide describes methods that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for implementing these requirements, with regard to selecting reactor coolant leakage detection systems, monitoring for leakage, and responding to leakage. This guide applies to light-water cooled reactors. II. Further Information In June 2007, DG–1173 was published with a public comment period of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment period closed on August 28, 2007. The staff’s responses to the public comments are located in the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS), Accession Number ML073200289. Electronic copies of Regulatory Guide 1.45, Revision 1 are available through the NRC’s public Web site under ‘‘Regulatory Guides’’ at http:// www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doccollections/. In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR), which is located at Room O–1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852–2738. The PDR’s mailing address is USNRC PDR, Washington, DC 20555–0001. The PDR can also be reached by telephone at (301) 415–4737 or (800) 397–4209, by fax at (301) 415–3548, and by e-mail to pdr@nrc.gov. Regulatory guides are not copyrighted, and NRC approval is not required to reproduce them. PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 21st day of May, 2008.

E8–11847 Filed 5–27–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7590–01–P OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request for Extension, Without Change, of a Currently Approved Information Collection: RI 20–64, RI 20–64A and RI 20–64B Office of Personnel Management. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension, without change, of a currently approved information collection. RI 20–64, Letter Reply to Request for Information, is used by the Civil Service Retirement System to provide information about the amount of annuity payable after a survivor reduction, to explain the annuity reductions required to pay for the survivor benefit, and to give the beginning rate of survivor annuity. RI 20–64A, Former Spouse Survivor Annuity Election, is used by the Civil Service Retirement System to obtain a survivor benefits election from annuitants who are eligible to elect to provide survivor benefits for a former spouse. RI 20–64B, Information on Electing a Survivor Annuity for Your Former Spouse, is a pamphlet that provides important information to retirees under the Civil Service Retirement System who want to provide a survivor annuity for a former spouse. We estimate that 30 survivor elections on RI 20–64A will be processed per year and that of these eight will use RI 20– 64 to ask for information about electing a smaller survivor benefit. Form RI 20– 64A requires 45 minutes to complete for a burden of 23 hours. Form RI 20–64 requires 8 minutes to complete for a burden of 1 hour. The total burden is 24 hours. For copies of this proposal, contact Mary Beth Smith-Toomey on (202) 606– 8358, FAX (202) 418–3251 or via E-mail to MaryBeth.Smith-Toomey@opm.gov. E:\FR\FM\28MYN1.SGM 28MYN1
