SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) is considering an application dated January 31, 2011, from Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to amend its Special Nuclear Material License No. SNM–2511, under the provisions of 10 CFR part 72, for the receipt, possession, storage and transfer of spent fuel, reactor-related Greater than Class C waste and other radioactive materials associated with spent fuel storage at the Diablo Canyon Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI), located at the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant, Unit Nos. 1 and 2 site in San Luis Obispo County, California. If granted, the amendment will revise Materials License SNM–2511 as follows: 1. Changes to Technical Specifications (TS): a. TS 1.1, ‘‘Definitions,’’ is revised to include terms in support of high burnup fuel (HBF) selection criteria and the addition of neutron source assemblies (NSAs), and instrument tube tie rods (ITTRs). b. TS 2.0, ‘‘Approved Contents,’’ is revised in Tables 2.1–1 through 2.1–10 in support of HBF selection criteria and the addition of NSAs, and ITTRs. c. TS 2.0, ‘‘Approved Contents,’’ is revised to add new TS 2.3 and associated Table 2.3–1 to provide alternative calculations for burnup limits for fuel assemblies in a MultiPurpose Canister (MPC)-32 to allow selection of HBF. PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 d. TS 3.1.1, ‘‘Multi-Purpose Canister (MPC),’’ is revised to eliminate the vacuum drying option, which is not allowed for HBF, and to add a reference temperature of 70 °F for the MPC Helium backfill pressure range. e. TS 3.1.2, ‘‘Spent Fuel Storage Cask (SFSC) Heat Removal System,’’ is modified to allow the HI–STORM to be considered operable with up to 50 percent vent blockage (although removal of any blockage is still required on discovery). f. TS 3.1.4, ‘‘Supplemental Cooling System,’’ is added to provide the conditions and criteria for the supplemental cooling system (SCS). This change requires an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 72.236(f). TS 4.1.2b, ‘‘Design Features Important to Criticality Control,’’ is revised to change the B4C content in METAMIC to 33.0 wt%. g. TS 5.1.3b, ‘‘MPC and SFSC Loading, Unloading, and Preparation Program,’’ is revised to delete the requirement for maintaining the annulus full during vacuum drying and to restore the requirement for maintaining the annulus full during reflood (unloading). 2. Revision of the licensing basis as documented in the DC ISFSI Final Safety Analysis Report Update (FSARU) to: a. Upgrade the thermal analysis methodology to a three dimensional (3D) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model, b. Remove the requirement for 100% fuel failure coincident with 100% vent blockage, c. Change of some allowed component temperatures in the thermal evaluation (peak cladding, concrete, overpack metal, transfer cask lid neutron shielding), d. Reduce the required torque criteria for the MPC lift cleats, and e. Addition of design criteria for the SCS including a new accident for loss of SCS. 3. An exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 72.236(f) to allow use of a nonpassive SCS. An NRC acceptance review, documented in a letter to PG&E dated April 14, 2011, found that the application contains sufficient information for the NRC staff to begin its technical review. This application was docketed under 10 CFR 72.16; the ISFSI Docket No. is 72–26 and will remain the same for this action. All other procedural requirements in Part 72 will be met as the NRC continues to process this license amendment request (see section II of this notice, ‘‘Opportunity to Request a Hearing’’).

 [Docket Numbers 50-282 and 50-306; NRC-2009-0507]


Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2; Notice of 
Availability of the Final Supplement 39 to the Generic Environmental 
Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants Regarding the 
License Renewal of Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plants, Units 1 
and 2

    Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC) has published a final plant-specific supplement to the Generic 
Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants 
(GEIS), NUREG-1437, regarding the renewal of Operating Licenses DPR-42 
and DPR-60 for an additional 20 years of operation for Prairie Island 
Nuclear Generating Plant, Units 1 and Unit 2 (PINGP 1 and 2). The PINGP 
1 and 2 site is located near Red Wing, Minnesota, on the west bank of 
the Mississippi River in Goodhue County. Possible alternatives to the 
proposed action (license renewal) include the no action alternative and 
other 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 PINGP 1 and 2 are not so great that preserving the option

[[Page 29280]]

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 and 
other documents submitted by Northern States Power Company; (3) 
consultation with Federal, State, local, and Tribal agencies; (4) the 
staff's own independent review; and (5) consideration of public 
comments received during the scoping process and on the draft 
Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement.
    The final Supplement 39 to the GEIS is publicly available at the 
NRC Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 
Public File Area O-1F21, 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 39 to the GEIS is ML11133A029. Persons who do not 
have access to ADAMS or who encounter problems while 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 
pdr.resource@nrc.gov. In addition, the Red Wing Public Library, 225 
East Avenue, Red Wing, Minnesota 55066, has agreed to make the final 
supplement available for public inspection.
