SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision 
to an existing guide in the agency's ``Regulatory Guide'' series and 
the withdrawal of a regulatory guide. 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 3 of RG 3.11, ``Design, Construction, and Inspection of 
Embankment Retention Systems at Uranium Recovery Facilities,'' was 
issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG-
3032. This guide describes some engineering practices and methods 
generally considered by the NRC staff to be satisfactory for the 
design, construction, and inspection of embankment retention systems 
used for retaining liquid and solid wastes from uranium recovery 
operations. These practices and methods are the result of NRC review 
and action on a number of specific cases, and they reflect the latest 
general engineering approaches that are acceptable to the NRC staff. If 
future information results in alternative methods, the NRC staff will 
review such methods to determine their acceptability.
    DG-3032 updated and combined the guidance in Revision 2 of RG 3.11, 
and Revision 1 of RG 3.11.1, ``Operational Inspection and Surveillance 
of Embankment Retention Systems for Uranium Mill Tailings.'' For this 
reason, Revision 1 of RG 3.11.1 is being withdrawn.

II. Further Information

    In February 2008, DG-3032 was published with a public comment 
period of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment 
period closed on May 16, 2008. The staff's responses to the public 
comments are located in the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and 
Management System (ADAMS), Accession Number ML082380161.
    Electronic copies of Revision 3 of RG 3.11 are available through 
the NRC's public Web site under ``Regulatory Guides'' at http://
www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/.
    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.resource@nrc.gov.
    Regulatory guides are not copyrighted, and NRC approval is not 
required to reproduce them.
