Download as PDF 28482 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 95 / Tuesday, May 17, 2011 / Notices impacts associated with the proposed action. Environmental Impacts of the Alternatives to the Proposed Action As an alternative to the proposed action, the staff considered denial of the proposed action (i.e., the ‘‘no-action’’ alternative). Denial of the exemption request would result in no change in current environmental impacts. If the proposed action was denied, the licensee would have to comply with the fatigue rules in 10 CFR 26.205(c) and (d). This would cause unnecessary burden on the licensee, without a significant benefit in environmental impacts. The environmental impacts of the proposed exemption and the ‘‘no action’’ alternative are similar. Alternative Use of Resources The action does not involve the use of any different resources than those considered in the Final Environmental Statement for the BSEP dated January 1976, and the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants, NUREG–1437, Supplement 25, dated March 2006 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML060900480). Emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Agencies and Persons Consulted In accordance with its stated policy, on April 16, 2011, the NRC staff consulted with the North Carolina State official, Mr. William Lee Cox of the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources regarding the environmental impact of the proposed action. The State official had no comments. Finding of No Significant Impact Pursuant to 10 CFR 51.32, ‘‘Finding of No Significant Impact,’’ and on the basis of the above environmental assessment, the NRC concludes that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Accordingly, the NRC has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. For further details with respect to the proposed action, see the licensee’s letter dated December 16, 2010 (ADAMS Accession No. ML103630405), as supplemented by letters dated January 27, March 7, and April 13, 2011 (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML110730275, ML110400193, and ML11110A021).
