Before Administrative Judges: Michael M. Gibson, Chairman; Dr. Michael F. Kennedy; Dr. William W. Sager. On October 14, 2014, petitioner Citizens Allied for Safe Energy, Inc. (CASE) filed a petition requesting a hearing on license amendments issued to the Florida Power & Light Company’s (FPL) Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4 that increased the ultimate heat sink water temperature limit for the plant’s cooling canal system (CCS).1 CASE’s petition includes four proposed contentions, which read as follows: Contention 1—The uprate of Turkey Point reactors 3 & 4 has been concurrent with alarming increases in salinity, temperature, tritium and chloride in the CCS area. Contention 2—The exigent CCS problems started years before July, 2014 and were being addressed in 2013 and earlier. Contention 3—The measures being used to control the CCS conditions are extraordinarily invasive, environmentally usurious and some untested. Contention 4—The CCS is aging, old technology and FPL has no redundancy for Units 3 & 4 limiting corrective actions.2 On November 10, 2014, the NRC Staff and FPL filed answers arguing that CASE fails to meet the NRC’s standing and contention admissibility requirements.3 On November 17, 2014, CASE submitted a consolidated reply to the NRC Staff and FPL answers.4 The Board hereby schedules an oral argument on standing and contention admissibility to be held on January 14, 2015, at the Hampton Inn and Suites, 2855 NE 9th Street, Homestead, FL 33033, in the Reef Room.

II. Background On October 9, 2012 (77 FR 61446), the NRC solicited public comment on a prior version of draft Section 19.0, Revision 3. However, recent preapplication interactions between NRC staff and potential applicants for design certification have highlighted the NRC’s expectations for information that is sufficiently complete and technically adequate to allow the NRC staff to conduct its detailed technical review and complete it within a predictable timeframe. For this reason, the NRC believes that it is important to include the additional guidance in Section 19.0, Revision 3, at this time. III. Further Information The NRC seeks public comment on draft Section 19.0, Revision 3. E:\FR\FM\08DEN1.SGM 08DEN1
