Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 156 / Friday, August 13, 2010 / Notices NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION [Docket No. 52–043; NRC–2010–0215] emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES PSEG Power, LLC and PSEG Nuclear, LLC Acceptance for Docketing of an Application for an Early Site Permit for the PSEG Site By letter dated May 25, 2010, as supplemented by letters dated June 22, 2010, July 6, 2010, July 7, 2010, and July 29, 2010, PSEG Power, LLC and PSEG Nuclear, LLC filed with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) pursuant to Section 103 of the Atomic Energy Act and title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ an application for an early site permit (ESP) for the PSEG Site which is located on the southern part of Artificial Island on the east bank of the Delaware River in Lower Alloways Creek Township, Salem County, New Jersey. A notice of receipt and availability of this application was previously published in the Federal Register (75 FR 34794) on June 18, 2010. Other existing nuclear facilities licensed by the NRC located at this site are Salem Generating Station (SGS) Units 1 and 2 and Hope Creek Generating Station (HCGS) Unit 1. An applicant may seek an ESP in accordance with subpart A of 10 CFR part 52 separate from the filing of an application for a construction permit (CP) or combined license (COL) for a nuclear power facility. The ESP process allows resolution of issues relating to siting. At any time during the duration of an ESP (up to 20 years), the permit holder may reference the permit in a CP or COL application. The NRC staff has determined that PSEG has submitted information in accordance with 10 CFR parts 2, ‘‘Rules of Practice for Domestic Licensing Proceedings and Issuance of Orders,’’ and 10 CFR part 52 that is sufficiently complete and acceptable for docketing. The Docket Number established for this application is 52–043. The NRC staff will perform a detailed technical review of the application, and docketing of the ESP application does not preclude the NRC from requesting additional information from the applicant as the review proceeds, nor does it predict whether the Commission will grant or deny the application. The Commission will conduct a hearing in accordance with 10 CFR 52.21 and will receive a report on the application from the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards in accordance with 10 CFR 52.23. If the Commission then finds that the application meets the applicable VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:35 Aug 12, 2010 Jkt 220001 standards of the Atomic Energy Act and the Commission’s regulations, and that required notifications to other agencies and bodies have been made, the Commission will issue an ESP, in the form and containing conditions and limitations that the Commission finds appropriate and necessary. In accordance with 10 CFR part 51, the Commission will also prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. Pursuant to 10 CFR 51.26, and as part of the environmental scoping process, the staff intends to hold a public scoping meeting. Detailed information regarding this meeting will be included in a future Federal Register notice. Finally, the Commission will announce, in a future Federal Register notice, the opportunity to petition for leave to intervene in the hearing required for this application by 10 CFR 52.21. A copy of the PSEG Site ESP application is available for public inspection at the Commission’s Public Document Room located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland, at the Penns Grove-Carneys Point Public Library, Penns Grove, New Jersey, and at the Salem Free Public Library, Salem, New Jersey. It is also accessible on the NRC Web site at https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/ new-reactors/esp/pseg.html. The application submittal cover letter is available electronically from the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Public Electronic Reading Room on the Internet at the NRC Web site, https:// www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html (ADAMS Accession No. ML101480484).
