SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The NRC is considering issuance of amendments to Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. DPR–70, DPR– 75, and NPF–57 issued to PSEG for operation of Salem and Hope Creek, located in Lower Alloways Creek Township, Salem County, New Jersey. Therefore, as required by Section 51.21 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC performed an environmental assessment (EA) to document its findings related to the proposed license amendments. The PSEG submitted its license amendment request by letter dated December 9, 2014 (ADAMS Accession No. ML14343A926), and subsequently supplemented its application by letter dated April 9, 2015 (ADAMS Accession No. ML15099A766). A notice of consideration of issuance, proposed no significant hazards consideration determination, and opportunity for a hearing for the proposed license amendments was issued in the Federal Register on April 14, 2015 (80 FR 20024). Based on information provided in PSEG’s application and associated supplement and the NRC staff’s independent review, the NRC did not identify any significant environmental impacts associated with the proposed license amendments. PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33297 Based on the results of the EA documented herein, the NRC has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed license amendments and is issuing a finding of no significant impact (FONSI), in accordance with 10 CFR 51.32. II. Environmental Assessment Plant Site and Environs Salem is a two-unit station with pressurized water reactors that use a once-through cooling system that withdraws water from and discharges heated water to the Delaware Estuary. Hope Creek is a one-unit station with a boiling-water reactor that uses a closedcycle cooling water system that includes a natural draft cooling tower and intake and discharge structures on the Delaware Estuary. Both facilities also withdraw water from the estuary for their service water systems. Salem and Hope Creek lie at the southern end of Artificial Island along the east bank of the Delaware River in Lower Alloways Creek Township, Salem County, New Jersey. Artificial Island is a 1,500-acre (ac; 600-hectare [ha]) man-made island consisting of industrial lands, tidal marsh, and grassland. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers created the island by depositing hydraulic dredge spoil material atop a natural sand bar. The average elevation of the island is about 9 feet (ft; 3 meters [m]) above mean sea level (MSL), and the maximum elevation is approximately 18 ft (5.5 m) above MSL. The PSEG owns approximately 740 ac (300 ha) at the southern end of the Artificial Island, of which Salem occupies 220 ac (89 ha) and Hope Creek occupies 153 ac (62 ha). The remainder of Artificial Island is owned by the U.S. Government and the State of New Jersey; this portion of the island remains undeveloped. The northernmost tip of Artificial Island (owned by the U.S. Government) is within the State of Delaware boundary. Artificial Island lies approximately 8 miles (mi; 13 kilometers [km]) southwest of the City of Salem, New Jersey, 17 mi (27 km) south of the Delaware Memorial Bridge, 35 mi (56 km) southwest of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), the NRC’s predecessor agency, and the NRC have previously conducted environmental reviews of Salem and Hope Creek in several documents, and the descriptions therein continue to accurately depict the Salem and Hope Creek site and environs. Those documents include the AEC’s April E:\FR\FM\11JNN1.SGM 11JNN1
