ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing and publishing for public comment a Draft Supplement to the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the irradiator proposed by Pa’ina Hawaii, LLC (Pa’ina). On June 23, 2005, Pa’ina submitted an application to NRC jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:27 Dec 03, 2010 Jkt 223001 requesting a license to possess and use byproduct material in connection with a proposed underwater irradiator. NRC completed the Final EA and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for this action on August 10, 2007, and subsequently issued a license to Pa’ina on August 17, 2007. The license authorizes Pa’ina to possess and use byproduct material (sealed sources) in a commercial underwater irradiator to be located adjacent to Honolulu International Airport on Palekona Street near Lagoon Drive. NRC is issuing this Draft Supplement to the EA in response to a decision of the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board (Board) from the NRC’s Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel (ASLBP). As directed by the Board, this Draft Supplement addresses the following three areas: (1) Environmental impacts of accidents that might occur during the transport of cobalt-60 sources to and from Pa’ina’s irradiator, (2) electron-beam technology as an alternative to cobalt-60 irradiation, and (3) alternative sites for Pa’ina’s irradiator. DATES: The public comment period on the Draft Supplement begins on the date of publication of this notice and ends on January 6, 2011. Written comments should be submitted as described in the ADDRESSES section of this notice. Comments submitted by mail should be postmarked by January 6, 2011, to ensure consideration.

Introduction By letter dated August 17, 2007, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued Materials License No. 53– 29296–01 to Pa’ina authorizing possession and use of byproduct material (sealed sources) in a commercial underwater irradiator to be located immediately adjacent to Honolulu International Airport on Palekona Street near Lagoon Drive. Also on August 17, 2007, NRC published a Notice of Availability in the Federal Register for the EA and FONSI prepared in support of this licensing action (72 FRN 46249). On September 4, 2007, Concerned Citizens of Honolulu filed contentions challenging the NRC staff’s analysis in the Final EA. In an August 27, 2009 decision, the Board found that the staff needed to supplement the Pa’ina EA in order to address (1) environmental impacts of accidents that might occur during the transport of cobalt-60 sources to and from Pa’ina’s irradiator, (2) electron-beam technology as an alternative to cobalt-60 irradiation, and (3) alternative sites for Pa’ina’s irradiator. The Board’s findings on these issues were affirmed in a July 8, 2010 decision by the NRC’s Commission. In the Draft Supplement issued today, the NRC staff addresses each of the issues identified by the Board. E:\FR\FM\06DEN1.SGM 06DEN1
