Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative energy sources. As discussed in Section 9.4 of the final supplement, the staff determined that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for HCGS and Salem are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy planning decision makers would be unreasonable. This recommendation is based on: (1) The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2) information provided in the environmental report (ER) submitted by PSEG Nuclear, LLC; (3) consultation with Federal, State, and local agencies; (4) a review of pertinent documents and reports; and (5) consideration of public comments received during scoping and on the draft SEIS. The final Supplement 45 to the GEIS 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. The accession number for the final Supplement 45 to the GEIS is ML11089A021.

The Petition Review Board (PRB) met on January 24, 2011, to discuss the petition and denied the request for immediate action to bring VY to a cold shutdown mode of operation and to perform an immediate NRC investigation and inspection of VY because the PRB did not identify any urgent public health and safety concerns that would warrant an immediate shutdown and NRC investigation and inspection.

Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc., Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee, 
LLC, Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station, Receipt of Request for 
Action

    Notice is hereby given that by petition dated January 14, 2011, Mr. 
Thomas Saporito has requested that pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 2.206, ``Requests for Action 
under this Subpart,'' the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) take 
action with regard to the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station (VY).
    Mr. Saporito requested in his petition that the NRC (1) Issue a 
confirmatory order requiring the licensee to immediately bring the 
reactor in question to a cold shutdown mode of operation; (2) issue a 
civil penalty against the licensee; (3) remove the licensee's employees 
responsible for this matter from NRC-licensed activities for a period 
of no less than 5 years; and (4) perform an immediate NRC investigation 
and inspection of VY to ensure that all nuclear safety-related systems 
are properly operational in accordance with the licensee's technical 
specification and NRC license.
    The Petition Review Board (PRB) met on January 24, 2011, to discuss 
the petition and denied the request for immediate action to bring VY to 
a cold shutdown mode of operation and to perform an immediate NRC 
investigation and inspection of VY because the PRB did not identify any 
urgent public health and safety concerns that would warrant an 
immediate shutdown and NRC investigation and inspection.
    On January 24, 2011, Mr. Saporito was informed of the PRB's 
decision on the immediate action, and he requested an opportunity to 
address the PRB before its initial meeting to provide supplemental 
information for the Board's consideration. By teleconference on January 
26, 2011, Mr. Saporito provided information to the PRB as further 
explanation and support for the petition. A copy of the transcript is

ML110330256.
    The PRB met on February 2, 2011, to discuss the petition and made 
an initial recommendation to accept the petition in part concerning the 
failure of relief valve because this issue met the criteria for review.
    On February 8, 2011, Mr. Saporito was informed of the PRB's initial 
recommendation to accept the petition in part, and Mr. Saporito 
requested another opportunity to address the PRB to provide comments to 
the PRB's initial recommendation and additional information in support 
of the petition. By teleconference on February 14, 2011, Mr. Saporito 
provided information to the PRB in support of his request for an 
immediate shutdown and an immediate NRC investigation and inspection of 
VY. A copy of the transcript is available in ADAMS under Accession No. 
ML110330256.
    The PRB confirmed its initial recommendation because the additional 
information provided on February 14, 2011, did not change the PRB's 
decision to deny the request for immediate action.
    The requests are being treated pursuant to 10 CFR 2.206 of the 
Commission's regulations. The requests have been referred to the 
Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. As provided by 10 
CFR 2.206, appropriate action will be taken on this consolidated 
petition within a reasonable time.
