Regarding this material, WEC seeks approval, pursuant to section 20.2002 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), of proposed disposal procedures which are not otherwise authorized by NRC regulations. WEC holds NRC License No. SNM–33, which authorizes the licensee to conduct decommissioning activities at its former fuel cycle facility located in Festus, Missouri. Since the fuel cycle facility operations have ceased, the Hematite site is undergoing decommissioning. The facility is now referred to as the Hematite Decommissioning Project (HDP). The amendment request seeks authorization allowing WEC to transfer decommissioning waste to U.S. Ecology Idaho, Inc. (USEI), a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Subtitle C disposal facility located near Grand View, Idaho. This facility is regulated by the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, and is not an NRC-licensed facility. Pursuant to 10 CFR 30.11 and 10 CFR 70.17, WEC’s application also requested exemptions from the licensing PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 requirements of 10 CFR 30.3 and 10 CFR 70.3 for the byproduct and special nuclear material it seeks to transfer. These exemptions are necessary because the disposal of byproduct and special nuclear material must occur at a facility licensed to possess such material, and the USEI facility has no NRC license. On October 4, 2012, USEI requested that they be considered a party to WEC’s January 16, 2012, alternate disposal request and also requested exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR 30.3 and 10 CFR 70.3. On March 19, 2012 (77 FR 16077), the NRC published in the Federal Register a Notice of Opportunity for Hearing on the January 16, 2012, WEC license amendment request ADAMS Accession Nos. ML12017A188, ML12017A189 and ML12017A190. The NRC relied upon the information provided in the January 16, 2012, license amendment request and supporting documentation and other sources as noted in the Environmental Assessment’s (EA) references section, in preparing the EA. II. Environmental Assessment Summary Under 10 CFR 20.2002, WEC proposes to dispose of about 23,000 m3 (30,000 yd3) of low-level waste (LLW) from the HDP that contains source, byproduct and special nuclear material at the USEI hazardous waste disposal facility near Grand View, Idaho. The LLW will be generated from building slabs, asphalt, soils, buried piping and miscellaneous equipment associated with HDP. In 2002, WEC and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) entered into a Letter Agreement, which, among other things, provided for MDNR oversight of certain studies and response actions in accordance with the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan under the requirements of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq. (Westinghouse MDNR Review Draft Remedial Design Work Plan, 2002 (ADAMS Accession No. ML020880266)). Subsequently, Missouri and WEC entered into a Consent Decree, and the Letter Agreement was terminated. The Consent Decree provides for MDNR oversight of those portions of the investigation and selection of the remedy for Operable Units at the site that are not preempted by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. The Selected Remedy for Operable Unit 1 at the HDP is Alternative 4: Removal, Treatment of Volatile Organic E:\FR\FM\05FEN1.SGM 05FEN1

In the Matter of Virginia Electric and Power Company, and Old 
Dominion Electric Cooperative; ESP for North Anna ESP Site; Order 
Approving Direct Transfer of Early Site Permit and Approving Conforming

I

    Virginia Electric and Power Company, doing business as Dominion 
Virginia Power (DVP), and Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC),

November 27, 2007, pursuant to section 52.24 of Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR) ``Issuance of Early Site Permit.'' The 
permit expires on November 27, 2027.

II

    By application dated March 1, 2012, DVP requested, on its own 
behalf and behalf of ODEC, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.80, that the U.S. 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consent to the transfer of ODEC's 
undivided ownership interest in ESP-003 from ODEC to DVP, with DVP 
becoming the sole permit holder. As a result of this transfer, DVP will 
assume all of ODEC's rights and obligations, including all rights and 
obligations under the ESP.
    A notice entitled, Approval of Transfer of Early Site Permit (ESP) 
and Conforming Amendment, Virginia Electric and Power Company, North 
Anna ESP Site, was published in the Federal Register on September 10, 
2012 (77 FR 55507). No comments or hearing requests were received.
    Under 10 CFR 50.80, no ESP, or any right thereunder, shall be 
transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the 
ESP, unless the Commission shall give its consent in writing. Upon 
review of the information in the application, and other information 
before the Commission, the NRC staff has determined that DVP is 
qualified to hold the ESP-003 to the extent proposed to permit the 
transfer of ODEC's interest in ESP-003, and that the transfer of the 
ESP-003 is otherwise consistent with the applicable provisions of law, 
regulations, and orders issued by the NRC, pursuant thereto. The NRC 
staff has further found that the application for the proposed 
conforming amendment to the ESP-003 complies with the standards and 
requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), 
and the Commission's rules and regulations set forth in 10 CFR Chapter 
I; activities at the site will be in conformity with the application, 
the provisions of the Act and the rules and regulations of the 
Commission; there is reasonable assurance that the activities 
authorized by the proposed conforming amendment can be conducted 
without endangering the health and safety of the public and that such 
activities will be conducted in compliance with the Commission's 
regulations; the issuance of the proposed conforming amendment will not 
be inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and 
safety of the public; and the issuance of the proposed conforming 
amendment will be in accordance with 10 CFR Part 51 of the Commission's 
regulations and all applicable requirements have been satisfied. The 
findings set forth above are supported by a safety evaluation dated 
January 30, 2013.

III

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, 161o, and 184 of the 
Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), 42 U.S.C. 2201(b), 
2201(i), 2201(o), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, it is hereby ordered that 
the application regarding the proposed direct ESP transfer is approved:
    It is further ordered that consistent with 10 CFR 2.1315(b), the 
conforming amendment that makes a change, as indicated in Enclosure 2 
to the cover letter forwarding this Order, to reflect the subject 
direct transfer, is approved. The amendment shall be issued and made 
effective immediately.
    All actions necessary for the proposed direct transfer action have 
been completed, and this Order is effective upon issuance.
