Therefore, as required by 10 CFR 51.21, the NRC is issuing this environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact. Environmental Assessment Identification of the Proposed Action The proposed action would allow the use of up to eight lead fuel assemblies (LFAs) manufactured by AREVA NP with fuel rods clad with M5 to be inserted into the PVNGS, Unit 1 reactor core during operating Cycles 15, 16, and 17. The proposed action is in accordance with the licensee’s request for exemption dated March 8, 2008, as supplemented by letter dated September 10, 2008. The Need for the Proposed Action The proposed temporary exemption is needed to allow the use of M5 LFAs by APS to evaluate cladding for future fuel assemblies that may need to be of a more robust design than current fuel assemblies to allow for possibly higher duty or extended burnup. The regulations specify standards and acceptance criteria only for fuel rods clad with Zircaloy or ZIRLO. Consistent with 10 CFR 50.46, a temporary exemption is required to use fuel rods clad with an advanced alloy that is not Zircaloy or ZIRLO. Therefore, the licensee needs a temporary exemption to insert up to eight LFAs containing new cladding material into the PVNGS, E:\FR\FM\02OCN1.SGM 02OCN1
