Before Administrative Judges: G. Paul Bollwerk, III, Chairman, Dr. Kaye D. Lathrop, Dr. Craig M. White. The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board hereby gives notice that it will convene an evidentiary session to receive testimony and exhibits in the ‘‘mandatory hearing’’ portion of this proceeding regarding the December 2008 application by AREVA Enrichment Services, LLC (AES) seeking a license under 10 CFR Parts 30, 40, and 70 authorizing (1) the construction and operation of a gas centrifuge uranium enrichment facility—denoted as the Eagle Rock Enrichment Facility (EREF)—in Bonneville County, Idaho; and (2) the receipt, possession, use, delivery, and transfer of byproduct (e.g., calibration sources), source and special nuclear material at the EREF. This evidentiary hearing session will concern environmental matters relating to the proposed issuance of the requested license. In addition, the Licensing Board gives notice that, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.315(a), it will entertain oral and written limited appearance statements from members of the public in connection with this proceeding. A. Matters To Be Considered As set forth by the Commission in the July 30, 2009 notice of hearing regarding this proceeding,1 relative to 1 See Notice of Receipt of Application for License; Notice of Consideration of Issuance of License; Notice of Hearing and Commission Order and Order Imposing Procedures for Access to Sensitive Unclassified Non-Safeguards Information and Safeguards Information for Contention Preparation; In the Matter of Areva Enrichment Services, LLC PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34103 environmental matters the Board is required independently to (1) determine whether the requirements of section 102(2)(A), (C) and (E) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(A), (C), (E), and Subpart A of 10 CFR part 51 have been complied with in the proceeding; (2) determine whether the review conducted by the NRC staff pursuant to Part 51 has been adequate; (3) consider the final balance among conflicting factors contained in the record of the proceeding with a view to determining the appropriate action to be taken; and (4) determine, after weighing the environmental, economic, technical, and other benefits against the environmental and other costs, and considering reasonable alternatives, whether a license should be issued, denied, or appropriately conditioned to protect environmental values. More specifically with regard to this portion of the proceeding that concerns generally the environmental-related aspects of the AES environmental report and the associated staff final environmental impact statement (FEIS),2 AES and the staff will make evidentiary presentations to the Board regarding the purpose and need for the proposed EREF; ‘‘preconstruction’’ activities; greenhouse gas impacts of the EREF’s production power consumption; construction air quality impacts; the facility’s radiological effluent monitoring program; and the status of the historic/cultural resources memorandum of agreement and associated mitigation measures. B. Date, Time, and Location of Environmental-Related Portion of the Mandatory Hearing The Board will conduct the portion of the mandatory hearing regarding environmental matters beginning at 9:30 a.m. Mountain Time (MT) on Tuesday, July 12, 2011, at the Red Lion on the Falls Convention Center, Targhee/ Bonneville Rooms, 475 River Parkway, (Eagle Rock Enrichment Facility), 74 FR 38,052, 38,054 (July 30, 2009) (CLI–09–15, 70 NRC 1, 7–8 (2009)). 2 After conducting a January 2011 evidentiary hearing session concerning safety-related matters relative to the AES safety analysis report and the associated staff safety evaluation report, in an April 2011 partial initial decision the Licensing Board provided its findings and conclusions, determining that (1) the AES application contains sufficient information to support license issuance; and (2) the staff’s review of the application had been adequate to support license issuance, subject to a license condition regarding the qualifications of the facility’s nuclear criticality safety manager and an unresolved decommissioning funding financial assurance issue that awaits Commission consideration of a pending Board-certified question.

Epstein, hereinafter referred to as the ‘‘Petitioner.’’ The petition was supplemented during an October 19, 2010, Petition Review Board (PRB) meeting, via teleconference, with the Petitioner and FirstEnergy Corporation, hereinafter referred to as FENOC. [NOTE: GPU Nuclear is the license holder for Three Mile Island, Unit 2 (TMI–2).] The transcript of this teleconference is available in the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS No. ML103120216). The petition concerns the decommissioning funding for TMI–2. The petition requested that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) take enforcement action in the form of a Demand for Information from FENOC VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:33 Jun 09, 2011 Jkt 223001 relating to inadequate financial assurance provided by the licensee for TMI–2’s nuclear decommissioning fund. As the basis for the September 30, 2010, request, the Petitioner states that the current radiological decommissioning cost estimate is $831.5 million and the current amount in the decommissioning trust fund is $484.5 million, as of December 31, 2008. Further, the Petitioner states that FENOC’s decommissioning report is inadequate, and fails to account for the special status of TMI–2, the current level of underfunding, or the fact that decommissioning rate recovery for Metropolitan Edison and Pennsylvania Electric ceases per Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission Orders on December 31, 2010. On October 19, 2010, the Petitioner and licensee met with the staff’s PRB via teleconference. The meeting gave the Petitioner and the licensee an opportunity to provide additional information and to clarify issues identified in the petition. The NRC sent a copy of the proposed Director’s Decision to the Petitioner and to the licensee for comment on April 5, 2011 (ADAMS Nos. ML110680183 and ML110940183). The Petitioner responded with comments on May 1, 2011 (ADAMS No. ML111260128) and the licensee responded on April 18, 2011 (ADAMS No. ML11116A073). Comments submitted by the Petitioner and licensee, and the NRC staff responses, are discussed in the attachment to the Director’s Decision. The Director of FSME has determined that the request for NRC to demand information relating to inadequate financial assurance provided by the licensee for TMI–2’s nuclear decommissioning fund, be denied. The request is denied because the updated decommissioning funding status report submitted by GPU Nuclear on March 29, 2010, for TMI–2, which is the latest sitespecific decommissioning funding plan, provides adequate decommissioning funding assurance in accordance with NRC regulations. GPU Nuclear is owned by FENOC. A complete discussion of the reasons for this decision are explained in the Director’s Decision pursuant to 10 CFR 2.206 (DD–11–04), the complete text of which is available in ADAMS for inspection at the Commission’s Public Document Room, located at One White Flint, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland 20852, and from the ADAMS Public Library component on the NRC’s Web site, http://www.nrc.gov (the public Electronic Reading Room).

Enrichment Facility); Notice of Hearing, (Notice of Evidentiary Hearing 
and Opportunity To Provide Oral and Written Limited Appearance 
Statements)

June 2, 2011.

Before Administrative Judges: G. Paul Bollwerk, III, Chairman, Dr. 
Kaye D. Lathrop, Dr. Craig M. White.

    The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board hereby gives notice that it 
will convene an evidentiary session to receive testimony and exhibits 
in the ``mandatory hearing'' portion of this proceeding regarding the 
December 2008 application by AREVA Enrichment Services, LLC (AES) 
seeking a license under 10 CFR Parts 30, 40, and 70 authorizing (1) the 
construction and operation of a gas centrifuge uranium enrichment 
facility--denoted as the Eagle Rock Enrichment Facility (EREF)--in 
Bonneville County, Idaho; and (2) the receipt, possession, use, 
delivery, and transfer of byproduct (e.g., calibration sources), source 
and special nuclear material at the EREF. This evidentiary hearing 
session will concern environmental matters relating to the proposed 
issuance of the requested license. In addition, the Licensing Board 
gives notice that, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.315(a), it will 
entertain oral and written limited appearance statements from members 
of the public in connection with this proceeding.

A. Matters To Be Considered

    As set forth by the Commission in the July 30, 2009 notice of 
hearing regarding this proceeding,\1\ relative to environmental matters 
the Board is required independently to (1) determine whether the 
requirements of section 102(2)(A), (C) and (E) of the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(A), (C), 
(E), and Subpart A of 10 CFR part 51 have been complied with in the 
proceeding; (2) determine whether the review conducted by the NRC staff 
pursuant to Part 51 has been adequate; (3) consider the final balance 
among conflicting factors contained in the record of the proceeding 
with a view to determining the appropriate action to be taken; and (4) 
determine, after weighing the environmental, economic, technical, and 
other benefits against the environmental and other costs, and 
considering reasonable alternatives, whether a license should be 
issued, denied, or appropriately conditioned to protect environmental 
values. More specifically with regard to this portion of the proceeding 
that concerns generally the environmental-related aspects of the AES 
environmental report and the associated staff final environmental 
impact statement (FEIS),\2\ AES and the staff will make evidentiary 
presentations to the Board regarding the purpose and need for the 
proposed EREF; ``preconstruction'' activities; greenhouse gas impacts 
of the EREF's production power consumption; construction air quality 
impacts; the facility's radiological effluent monitoring program; and 
the status of the historic/cultural resources memorandum of agreement 
and associated mitigation measures.

38,052, 38,054 (July 30, 2009) (CLI-09-15, 70 NRC 1, 7-8 (2009)).
    \2\ After conducting a January 2011 evidentiary hearing session 
concerning safety-related matters relative to the AES safety 
analysis report and the associated staff safety evaluation report, 
in an April 2011 partial initial decision the Licensing Board 
provided its findings and conclusions, determining that (1) the AES 
application contains sufficient information to support license 
issuance; and (2) the staff's review of the application had been 
adequate to support license issuance, subject to a license condition 
regarding the qualifications of the facility's nuclear criticality 
safety manager and an unresolved decommissioning funding financial 
assurance issue that awaits Commission consideration of a pending 
Board-certified question. See LBP-11-11, 73 NRC, --, ----- (slip op.
