[Docket No. 50-346; NRC-2010-0298]


FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company; Notice of Intent To 
Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement and Conduct the Scoping 
Process for Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station, Unit 1

    FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (FENOC) has submitted an 
application for renewal of Facility Operating License No. NPF-003 for 
an additional 20 years of operation at Davis-Besse Nuclear Power 
Station, Unit 1 (DBNPS). DBNPS is located in Oak Harbor, Ohio.
    The current operating license for DBNPS expires on April 22, 2017. 
The application for renewal, dated August 27, 2010, was submitted 
pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 
54, which included an environmental report (ER). A separate notice of 
receipt and availability of the application was published in the 
Federal Register on September 20, 2010 (75 FR 57299). A notice of 
acceptance for docketing of the application and opportunity for hearing 
regarding renewal of the facility operating license is also being 
published in the Federal Register. The purpose of this notice is to 
inform the public that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 
will be preparing an environmental impact statement (EIS) related to 
the review of the license renewal application and to provide the public 
an opportunity to participate in the environmental scoping process, as 
defined in 10 CFR 51.29.
    As outlined in 36 CFR 800.8, ``Coordination with the National 
Environmental Policy Act,'' the NRC plans to coordinate compliance with 
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) in meeting 
the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
(NEPA). Pursuant to 36 CFR 800.8(c), the NRC intends to use its process 
and documentation for the preparation of the EIS on the proposed action 
to comply with Section 106 of the NHPA in lieu of the procedures set 
forth at 36 CFR 800.3 through 800.6.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 51.53(c) and 10 CFR 54.23, FENOC 
submitted the ER as part of the application. The ER was prepared 
pursuant to 10 CFR Part 51 and is publicly available at the NRC Public 
Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville 
Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852, or from the NRC's Agencywide Documents 
Access and Management System (ADAMS). The ADAMS Public Electronic 
Reading Room is accessible at  http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. From this page, the public can gain entry into ADAMS, which 
provides text and image files of NRC's public documents. The ADAMS 
Accession Number for the DBNPS ER is ML102450572. Persons who do not 
have access to ADAMS or who encounter problems in accessing the 
documents located in ADAMS should contact the NRC's PDR reference staff 
by telephone at 800-397-4209 or 301-415-4737 or by e-mail at

necessary to prepare a plant-specific supplement to the NRC's ``Generic 
Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) for License Renewal of Nuclear 
Plants,'' (NUREG-1437) related to the review of the application for 
renewal of the DBNPS operating license for an additional 20 years.
    Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) 
include no action and reasonable alternative energy sources. The NRC is 
required by 10 CFR 51.95 to prepare a supplement to the GEIS in 
connection with the renewal of an operating license. This notice is 
being published in accordance with NEPA and the NRC's regulations found 
at 10 CFR Part 51.
    The NRC will first conduct a scoping process for the supplement to 
the GEIS and, as soon as practicable thereafter, will prepare a draft 
supplement to the GEIS for public comment. Participation in the scoping 
process by members of the public and local, State, Tribal, and Federal 
government agencies is encouraged. The scoping process for the 
supplement to the GEIS will be used to accomplish the following:
    a. Define the proposed action, which is to be the subject of the 
supplement to the GEIS;
    b. Determine the scope of the supplement to the GEIS and identify 
the significant issues to be analyzed in depth;
    c. Identify and eliminate from detailed study those issues that are 
peripheral or that are not significant;
    d. Identify any environmental assessments and other ElSs that are 
being or will be prepared that are related to, but are not part of, the 
scope of the supplement to the GEIS being considered;
    e. Identify other environmental review and consultation 
requirements related to the proposed action;
    f. Indicate the relationship between the timing of the preparation 
of the environmental analyses and the Commission's tentative planning 
and decision-making schedule;
    g. Identify any cooperating agencies and, as appropriate, allocate 
assignments for preparation and schedules for completing the supplement 
to the GEIS to the NRC and any cooperating agencies; and
    h. Describe how the supplement to the GEIS will be prepared and 
include any contractor assistance to be used.

    The NRC invites the following entities to participate in scoping:
    a. The applicant, FENOC;
    b. Any Federal agency that has jurisdiction by law or special 
expertise with respect to any environmental impact involved or that is 
authorized to develop and enforce relevant environmental standards;
    c. Affected State and local government agencies, including those 
authorized to develop and enforce relevant environmental standards;
    d. Any affected Indian tribe;
    e. Any person who requests or has requested an opportunity to 
participate in the scoping process; and
    f. Any person who has petitioned or intends to petition for leave 
to intervene.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 51.26, the scoping process for an EIS may 
include a public scoping meeting to help identify significant issues 
related to a proposed activity and to determine the scope of issues to 
be addressed in an EIS. The NRC has decided to hold public meetings for 
the DBNPS license renewal supplement to the GEIS. The scoping meetings 
will be held on November 4, 2010, and there will be two sessions to 
accommodate interested parties. The first session will convene at 1:30 
p.m. and will continue until 3:30 p.m. The second session will convene 
at 7 p.m. with a repeat of the overview portions of the meeting and 
will continue until 9 p.m., as necessary. Both sessions will be held at 
the Camp Perry Conference Center, Port Clinton, OH 43452.
    Both meetings will be transcribed and will include: (1) An overview 
by the NRC staff of the NEPA environmental review process, the proposed 
scope of the supplement to the GEIS, and the proposed review schedule; 
and (2) the opportunity for interested government agencies, 
organizations, and individuals to submit comments or suggestions on the 
environmental issues or the proposed scope of the supplement to the 
GEIS. Additionally, the NRC staff will host informal discussions one 
hour prior to the start of each session at the same location. No formal 
comments on the proposed scope of the supplement to the GEIS will be 
accepted during the informal discussions. To be considered, comments 
must be provided either at the transcribed public meetings or in 
writing, as discussed below.
    Persons may register to attend or present oral comments at the 
meetings on the scope of the NEPA review by contacting the NRC Project 
Manager, Mrs. Paula Cooper, by telephone at 800-368-5642, extension 
2223, or by e-mail at Paula.Cooper@nrc.gov no later than November 2, 
2010. Members of the public may also register to speak at the meeting 
within 15 minutes of the start of each session. Individual oral

2010, if special equipment or accommodations are needed to attend or
