II. Discussion The draft report documents a consequence study that continues the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s examination of the risks and VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:48 Jul 01, 2013 Jkt 229001 consequences of postulated spent fuel pool accidents. The purpose of this study is to examine if faster removal of spent reactor fuel from pools to dry cask storage significantly reduces risks to public health and safety. Based on previous research showing earthquakes present the dominant risk for spent fuel pools, the draft study evaluated how a potential pool leakage from an unlikely severe earthquake might cause the used fuel to overheat and release radioactive material to the environment. A spent fuel pool’s robust concrete structure and stainless steel liner keep more than 20 feet of water above the spent fuel stored within it ensuring ample cooling for the spent fuel and adequate radiation shielding for plant personnel. This study compared potential accident consequences from a pool nearly filled with spent fuel and a pool in which fuel that has cooled sufficiently has been removed at a selected U.S. Mark I boiling-water reactor spent fuel pool. The staff first evaluated whether a severe, though unlikely, earthquake would damage the spent fuel pool to the point of leaking. In order to assess the consequences that might result from a spent fuel pool leak, the study assumed seismic forces greater than the maximum earthquake reasonably expected to occur at the reference plant location. The NRC expects that the ground motion used in this study is more challenging for the spent fuel pool structure than that experienced at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant from the earthquake that occurred off the coast of Japan on March 11, 2011. That earthquake did not result in any spent fuel pool leaks. In the small likelihood that such an extreme earthquake caused a leak, the staff then analyzed how the spent fuel could overheat and potentially release radioactive material into the environment. Finally, the staff analyzed what the public health and environmental effects of a radiological release would be in the area surrounding the plant. This draft study’s results for the specific reference plant and earthquake analyzed are consistent with past studies’ conclusions that spent fuel pools are likely to withstand severe earthquakes without leaking. The draft study shows the likelihood of a radiological release from the spent fuel after the analyzed severe earthquake at the reference plant to be very low. The regulatory analysis for this study indicates that expediting movement of spent fuel from the pool does not provide a substantial safety enhancement for the reference plant. The NRC will use this study in a PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 broader regulatory analysis of the spent fuel pools at all U.S. operating nuclear reactors as part of its Japan LessonsLearned activities. The NRC continues to believe, based on this study and previous studies that spent fuel pools provide adequate protection of public health and safety. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 24th day of June, 2013. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: product list. This document invites public comments on the request and addresses several related procedural steps. ADDRESSES: I. Introduction II. Notice of Filing III. Ordering Paragraphs I. Introduction In accordance with 39 U.S.C. 3642 and 39 CFR 3020.30 et seq., the Postal Service filed a request and associated supporting information to add Priority Mail Contract 60 to the competitive product list.1 It asserts that Priority Mail Contract 60 is a competitive product ‘‘not of general applicability’’ within the meaning of 39 U.S.C. 3632(b)(3). Request at 1. The Request has been assigned Docket No. MC2013–54. The Postal Service contemporaneously filed a redacted contract related to the proposed new product under 39 U.S.C. 3632(b)(3) and 39 CFR 3015.5. Id. Attachment B. The instant contract has been assigned Docket No. CP2013–70. Request. To support its Request, the Postal Service filed six attachments as follows: • Attachment A—a redacted copy of Governors’ Decision No. 11–6, authorizing the new product; • Attachment B—a redacted copy of the contract; • Attachment C—proposed changes to the Mail Classification Schedule competitive product list with the addition underlined; • Attachment D—a Statement of Supporting Justification as required by 39 CFR 3020.32; • Attachment E—a certification of compliance with 39 U.S.C. 3633(a); and 1 Request of the United States Postal Service to Add Priority Mail Contract 60 to Competitive Product List and Notice of Filing (Under Seal) of Unredacted Governors’ Decision, Contract, and Supporting Data, June 25, 2013 (Request). PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39783 • Attachment F—an application for non-public treatment of materials to maintain redacted portions of the contract and related financial information under seal. In the Statement of Supporting Justification, Dennis R. Nicoski, Manager, Field Sales Strategy and Contracts, asserts that the contract will cover its attributable costs and increase contribution toward the requisite 5.5 percent of the Postal Service’s total institutional costs. Id. Attachment D at 1. Mr. Nicoski contends that there will be no issue of market dominant products subsidizing competitive products as a result of this contract. Id. Related contract. The Postal Service included a redacted version of the related contract with the Request. Id. Attachment B. The contract is scheduled to become effective one business day after the Commission issues all necessary regulatory approval. Id. at 3. The contract will expire 3 years from the effective date unless, among other things, either party terminates the agreement upon 30 days’ written notice to the other party. Id. The contract also allows two 90-day extensions of the agreement if the preparation of a successor agreement is active and the Commission is notified. Id. The Postal Service represents that the contract is consistent with 39 U.S.C. 3633(a). Id. Attachment E. The Postal Service filed much of the supporting materials, including the related contract, under seal. Id. Attachment F. It maintains that the redacted portions of the Governors’ Decision, contract, customer-identifying information, and related financial information should remain confidential. Id. at 3. This information includes the price structure, underlying costs and assumptions, pricing formulas, information relevant to the customer’s mailing profile, and cost coverage projections. Id. The Postal Service asks the Commission to protect customeridentifying information from public disclosure indefinitely. Id. at 7. II. Notice of Filings The Commission establishes Docket Nos. MC2013–54 and CP2013–70 to consider the Request pertaining to the proposed Priority Mail Contract 60 product and the related contract, respectively. Interested persons may submit comments on whether the Postal Service’s filings in the captioned dockets are consistent with the policies of 39 U.S.C. 3632, 3633, or 3642, 39 CFR 3015.5, and 39 CFR part 3020, subpart B. Comments are due no later than July 5, 2013. The public portions of these E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1
