The RCF is a tank-type, light-watermoderated, critical facility licensed to operate at steady-state power levels up to and including 100 watts thermal power. The renewed Facility Operating License No. CX–22 will expire at midnight 20 years from its date of issuance. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:14 Jul 11, 2011 Jkt 223001 The renewed facility operating license complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the NRC’s regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), and sets forth those findings in the renewed facility operating license. The agency afforded an opportunity for hearing in the Notice of Opportunity for Hearing published in the Federal Register on May 15, 2008 (73 FR 28170). The NRC received no request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene. The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report for the renewal of Facility Operating License No. CX–22 and concluded, based on that evaluation, that the licensee can continue to operate the facility without undue risk to the health and safety of the public. The NRC staff also prepared an Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for license renewal, noticed in the Federal Register on June 14, 2011 (76 FR 34770), and concluded that renewal of the facility operating license will not have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment. For details with respect to the application for renewal, see the licensee’s letter dated November 19, 2002 (ML023380455 and ML072210835), as supplemented on July 21 (ML082060048), July 28 (ML082190523), and September 3, 2008 (ML101260200); June 28 (ML101820298), August 31 (ML102790045), October 14 (ML103070074), and October 28, 2010 (ML103080207); and February 14 (ML110490531) and May 9, 2011 (ML11131A180).
