Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public comment a draft guide in the agency’s Regulatory Guide Series. This series has been developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’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. The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ‘‘Standard Format and Content of License Applications for Conventional Uranium Mills,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–3024, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in preparing license applications for the receipt, possession, and use of source and byproduct material for conventional uranium milling. Conventional uranium milling is uranium recovery by crushing uranium ore and subjecting it to extraction processes in a mill facility to concentrate the uranium into a uranium-oxygen compound called PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 yellowcake. This regulatory guide describes an approach that is acceptable to the NRC staff for complying with the agency’s regulations in Title 10, Part 40, (Domestic Licensing of Source Material,’’ of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 40).

(Entergy) on behalf of itself; Entergy Mississippi Inc.; Entergy Louisiana, LLC; Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, LLC; and System Energy Resources, Inc., has submitted an application for a combined license (COL) for its Grand Gulf Nuclear Station (Grand Gulf) site to build Unit 3, located in Claiborne County, Mississippi, near Port Gibson, approximately 30 miles south of Vicksburg. The application for the COL was submitted by letter dated February 27, 2008, pursuant to the requirements of Title 10, Part 52, Subpart C. A notice of receipt and availability of the application, which included the Environmental Report (ER), was published in the Federal Register on March 19, 2008 (73 FR 14849). A notice of acceptance for docketing of the application for the COL was published in the Federal Register on April 24, 2008 (73 FR 22180). The purpose of this notice is to inform the public that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will be preparing a supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) in support of the proposed action of the issuance of a COL for the construction and operation of a nuclear power plant, as described in the COL application, at the Grand Gulf site described in early site permit (ESP) ESP–002 referenced in the COL application and to provide the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:52 May 29, 2008 Jkt 214001 public an opportunity to participate in the environmental scoping process, as defined in 10 CFR 51.29. In addition, as outlined in 36 CFR 800.8(c), ‘‘Coordination with The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)’’, the NRC staff intends to use the process and documentation required for the preparation of the EIS to comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, in lieu of the procedures set forth in 36 CFR 800.3 through 800.6. On April 5, 2007, the NRC issued ESP–002 to System Energy Resources, Inc. for the Grand Gulf site (the site of the proposed third reactor). An ESP is a NRC approval of a site as suitable for construction and operation of one or more new nuclear units. The NRC’s detailed review of the environmental impacts of constructing and operating a new nuclear unit is documented in NUREG–1817, ‘‘Environmental Impact Statement for an Early Site Permit at the Grand Gulf ESP Site.’’ Pursuant to NRC regulations in 10 CFR 51.50(c)(1), a COL applicant referencing an ESP need not submit information or analyses regarding environmental issues that were resolved in the ESP EIS, except to the extent the COL applicant has identified new and significant information regarding such issues. Pursuant to 10 CFR 52.39, matters resolved in the ESP proceedings are considered to be resolved in any subsequent proceedings, absent identification of new and significant information. In accordance with 10 CFR 51.45 and 10 CFR 51.50(c)(1), Entergy submitted an ER as part of the COL application, which need not contain information or analysis submitted in the ER for the ESP stage or resolved in the final EIS for the ESP stage. The ER for the COL stage, in addition to the environmental information and analyses otherwise required must provide: a. Information to demonstrate that the design of the facility falls within the site characteristics and design parameters specified in the ESP; b. Information to resolve any significant environmental issues that were not resolved in the ESP; c. New and significant information related to impacts of construction and operation that were resolved in the ESP; d. A description of the process used to identify new and significant information regarding the NRC’s conclusion in the EIS for the ESP; and e. A demonstration that all environmental terms and conditions that have been included in the ESP will be satisfied by the date of issuance of the combined license. PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31153 The COL ER is available for public inspection at the NRC Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland, or from the Publicly Available Records component of the NRC’s Agency-wide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS). ADAMS is accessible at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/ adams.html, which provides access through the NRC’s Electronic Reading Room (ERR) link. The accession number in ADAMS for the ER is ML080640404.
