Primarily used to make polyvinyl chloride (PVC), vinyl chloride is a highly flammable, colorless gas and a known carcinogen that may have an effect on the nervous system, eyes, liver, and respiratory tract through airborne exposure. The weather at the time was cloudy skies and calm winds with a temperature of 34°F. The 911 communications center was notified of the release at 7:01 a.m., and the first responders to the accident were members of the Paulsboro Fire and Police departments, assisted by hazardous materials specialists from a nearby refinery and the Gloucester County hazardous materials team. The first incident command was established about 50 yards from the bridge but was later moved a half mile away. Evacuation orders were imposed by local authorities shortly after the release, but subsequently were replaced with shelter-in-place recommendations. About 8 hours into the release, a unified command was established among the United States Coast Guard, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Paulsboro Fire Department, and Conrail. On the morning of the accident, 23 local residents were treated at a nearby hospital for possible vinyl chloride exposure. The train conductor and numerous emergency responders were also tested for vinyl chloride exposure. The investigative hearing will discuss Conrail operations and the emergency response to the hazardous materials release. Specific areas being discussed include Conrail bridge operations, Conrail procedures, incident command actions and emergency response decisions in the first day, hazardous materials emergency response operations, roles of the response teams, evacuations and communications, incident response protocols, hazmat training, oversight of Paulsboro emergency preparedness, roles of local, state and Federal agencies in emergency hazmat response, and interaction between state and Federal agencies in establishing a unified command. The goals of this hearing are to gather additional factual information regarding the actions of the first responders in Paulsboro, to explore the hierarchy of New Jersey State and local emergency management, training, regulations and standards applicable to emergency response personnel, and to examine the oversight of the Paulsboro emergency operations. Parties to the hearing include the Federal Railroad Administration, VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:17 Jun 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, United States Coast Guard, Conrail, Borough of Paulsboro, State of New Jersey, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, and the United Transportation Union.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Discussion The NRC received an application, dated April 23, 2007, from Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (Entergy), filed pursuant to Section 103 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 54 (10 CFR Part 54), to renew the operating license for IP2 and IP3. Renewal of the license would authorize the applicant to operate the facilities for an additional 20-year period beyond the period specified in the current operating licenses. The current operating license for IP2 expires on September 28, 2013, and the current operating license for IP3 expires on December 12, 2015. This supplement (Volume 4) to the FSEIS is being issued as part of the NRC’s process to decide whether to issue a renewed license to IP2 and IP3, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 54. This supplement to the FSEIS was prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA), and the NRC’s regulations for implementing NEPA in 10 CFR Part 51. In December 2010, the NRC published its FSEIS related to the license renewal of IP2 and IP3, NUREG–1437, Supplement 38, Volumes 1–3. After publication, the staff identified new information that necessitated changes to its assessments in the FSEIS.

This supplement to the FSEIS does not alter the conclusion stated in Section 9.3 of the December 2010 FSEIS: Based on (1) the analysis and findings in the GEIS, (2) the ER and other information submitted by Entergy, (3) consultation with Federal, State, Tribal, and local agencies, (4) the NRC staff’s consideration of public scoping comments received, and comments on the draft SEIS, and (5) the NRC staff’s independent review, the recommendation of the NRC staff is that the Commission determine that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for IP2 and IP3 are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy planning decision makers would be unreasonable.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    The NRC received an application, dated April 23, 2007, from Entergy 
Nuclear Operations, Inc. (Entergy), filed pursuant to Section 103 of 
the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations, Part 54 (10 CFR Part 54), to renew the operating 
license for IP2 and IP3. Renewal of the license would authorize the 
applicant to operate the facilities for an additional 20-year period 
beyond the period specified in the current operating licenses. The 
current operating license for IP2 expires on September 28, 2013, and 
the current operating license for IP3 expires on December 12, 2015.
    This supplement (Volume 4) to the FSEIS is being issued as part of 
the NRC's process to decide whether to issue a renewed license to IP2 
and IP3, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 54. This supplement to the FSEIS was 
prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 
1969, as amended (NEPA), and the NRC's regulations for implementing 
NEPA in 10 CFR Part 51.
    In December 2010, the NRC published its FSEIS related to the 
license renewal of IP2 and IP3, NUREG-1437, Supplement 38, Volumes 1-3. 
After publication, the staff identified new information that 
necessitated changes to its assessments in the FSEIS. In addition to 
supplementing the FSEIS to address the new information, the NRC is also 
documenting the completion of the consultation process under Section 7 
of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA), with the 
National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) regarding the shortnose 
sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum) and the Atlantic sturgeon (Acipenser 
oxyrinchus oxyrinchus) population in the vicinity of IP and IP3. This 
supplement to the FSEIS does not alter the conclusion stated in Section 
9.3 of the December 2010 FSEIS:
    Based on (1) the analysis and findings in the GEIS, (2) the ER and 
other information submitted by Entergy, (3) consultation with Federal, 
State, Tribal, and local agencies, (4) the NRC staff's consideration of 
public scoping comments received, and comments on the draft SEIS, and 
(5) the NRC staff's independent review, the recommendation of the NRC 
staff is that the Commission determine that the adverse environmental 
impacts of license renewal for IP2 and IP3 are not so great that 
preserving the option of license renewal for energy planning decision 
makers would be unreasonable.
    In preparing this supplement (Volume 4) to the final SEIS, the NRC 
staff also reviewed, considered, evaluated, and addressed the public 
comments received during the comment process on the draft supplement to 
the final SEIS.
