The NRC has terminated the license of the decommissioned ATR, at the Nuclear Research Laboratory (NRL) on the campus of the University of Illinois (U of IL) in Urbana, Illinois, and has released the site for unrestricted use. The licensee requested termination of the license in a letter to the NRC dated October 9, 2012 (ADAMS Accession Number ML12345A245). The ATR provided training for Nuclear Engineering students and various services for researchers in other departments at the U of IL. The University ceased operation of the facility in 1998, and the reactor fuel was removed in 2004. In 2007, the NRC approved the NRL Decommissioning Plan (DP) which required complete removal of the reactor, systems, and demolition of the facility.

The U of IL submitted the FSS report with the request for license termination for the ATR on October 9, 2012 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12345A245). The NRC reviewed the FSS report and determined that the survey data was in accordance with the Decommissioning Plan and the FSS Plan. The report documented that compliance with the criteria in the NRC-approved decommissioning plan for both reactors had been demonstrated. Additionally, a confirmatory survey including soil samples and a gamma walkover survey was completed by the NRC Region III staff. Their conclusions, as noted in the NRC’s Inspection Report 05000151/12005 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12307A330), were that ‘‘the results of the confirmatory surveys were consistent with the licensee’s final status survey results and below the required cleanup levels, or DCGLs,’’ and ‘‘the licensee adequately classified the survey units and applied the correct DCGLs in accordance with the FSSP.’’ Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(b)(6), the NRC staff has concluded that ATR at the NRL has been decommissioned in accordance with the approved decommissioning plans and that the terminal radiation surveys and associated documentation demonstrate that the facilities and site are suitable for release in accordance with the criteria for decommissioning in 10 CFR part 20, subpart E. Further, on the basis of the decommissioning activities carried out by the U of IL, the NRC’s review of the licensee’s final status survey report, the results of the NRC’s inspections conducted at the NRL, and the results of confirmatory surveys, the NRC has concluded that the decommissioning process is complete and the facilities and sites may be released for unrestricted use.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket No. 50-151; NRC-2013-0017]


Notice of License Termination for University of Illinois Advanced 
TRIGA Reactor, License No. R-115

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is noticing the 
termination of Facility Operating License No. R-115, for the University 
of Illinois Advanced TRIGA Reactor (ATR).
    The NRC has terminated the license of the decommissioned ATR, at 
the Nuclear Research Laboratory (NRL) on the campus of the University 
of Illinois (U of IL) in Urbana, Illinois, and has released the site 
for unrestricted use. The licensee requested termination of the license 
in a letter to the NRC dated October 9, 2012 (ADAMS Accession Number 
ML12345A245). The ATR provided training for Nuclear Engineering 
students and various services for researchers in other departments at 
the U of IL. The University ceased operation of the facility in 1998, 
and the reactor fuel was removed in 2004. In 2007, the NRC approved the 
NRL Decommissioning Plan (DP) which required complete removal of the 
reactor, systems, and demolition of the facility.
    The NRL underwent decommissioning activities from October 2011 
through May 2012. In July

2012, the licensee conducted a Final Status Survey (FSS) in the soils 
of the building footprint per the NRC reviewed FSS Plan. The Class 1 
survey unit consisted of the exposed soils in the building footprint 
and the Class 2 survey unit was the immediate area surrounding the 
excavation area.
    The U of IL submitted the FSS report with the request for license 
termination for the ATR on October 9, 2012 (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML12345A245). The NRC reviewed the FSS report and determined that the 
survey data was in accordance with the Decommissioning Plan and the FSS 
Plan. The report documented that compliance with the criteria in the 
NRC-approved decommissioning plan for both reactors had been 
demonstrated.
    Additionally, a confirmatory survey including soil samples and a 
gamma walkover survey was completed by the NRC Region III staff. Their 
conclusions, as noted in the NRC's Inspection Report 05000151/12005 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML12307A330), were that ``the results of the 
confirmatory surveys were consistent with the licensee's final status 
survey results and below the required cleanup levels, or DCGLs,'' and 
``the licensee adequately classified the survey units and applied the 
correct DCGLs in accordance with the FSSP.''
    Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(b)(6), the NRC staff has concluded that 
ATR at the NRL has been decommissioned in accordance with the approved 
decommissioning plans and that the terminal radiation surveys and 
associated documentation demonstrate that the facilities and site are 
suitable for release in accordance with the criteria for 
decommissioning in 10 CFR part 20, subpart E. Further, on the basis of 
the decommissioning activities carried out by the U of IL, the NRC's 
review of the licensee's final status survey report, the results of the 
NRC's inspections conducted at the NRL, and the results of confirmatory 
surveys, the NRC has concluded that the decommissioning process is 
complete and the facilities and sites may be released for unrestricted 
use. Therefore, Facility Operating License No. R-115 is terminated.
    The above referenced documents may be examined, and/or copied for a 
fee, at the NRC's Public Document Room (PDR) at One White Flint North, 
11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland. Publicly 
available records will be accessible electronically from the Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Public Reading Room on 
the Internet at the NRC's Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. Persons who do not have access to ADAMS or who have 
problems in accessing the documents in ADAMS should call the NRC PDR 
reference staff at 1-800-397-4209 or 301-415-4737 or email pdr@nrc.gov.
