Hancock Wind, LLC; Supplemental Notice That Initial Market-Based Rate Filing Includes Request for Blanket Section 204 Authorization, 45140-45141 [2016-16391]

Download as PDF 45140 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 133 / Tuesday, July 12, 2016 / Notices exposures would be expected for any of the seismic accident scenarios evaluated. Further, the risk 1 assessments for these seismic accident scenarios are bounded by those of other severe accidents for all facilities associated with EU operations at Y–12. This conclusion has not changed as a result of the new USGS seismic map for the eastern Tennessee area. NNSA has taken and will continue to take steps to reduce the MAR administrative limits for existing EU facilities to further reduce the radiological consequences of potential accidents. Although land disturbance and visual impacts would be slightly greater than the analysis in the Y–12 SWEIS (due to transmission line construction), those impacts would not be significant. The analysis in the SA indicates that the potential environmental impacts of the NNSA’s revised strategy would not be significantly different or significantly greater than those NNSA identified in the Y–12 SWEIS. For the resource areas analyzed, no differences or only minor differences in potential environmental impacts would be expected to result. Detailed descriptions of these differences are presented in Table 4–1 of the SA. After comparing the analysis of potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed actions in the SA to those analyzed in the Y–12 SWEIS, NNSA determined that preparation of a supplemental or new EIS is not warranted. Based on the analysis in the SA, NNSA’s revised strategy is not a substantial change to the proposals covered by the Y–12 SWEIS, nor does it represent significant new circumstances or information relevant to environmental concerns, and is adequately supported by existing NEPA documentation, including the Y–12 SWEIS and additional NEPA analyses (identified in Section 1.4 of the SA) prepared to address specific activities at Y–12. Thus, consistent with 10 CFR 1021.315(e), the existing 2011 ROD for the Y–12 SWEIS can be amended, and no further NEPA documentation is required to implement the proposed action at Y–12. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Environmentally Preferable Alternative In the 2011 ROD, NNSA designated the No Net Production/Capability-sized UPF Alternative (Alternative 5) as the environmentally preferable alternative. NNSA believes that alternative is still 1 Although ‘‘risk’’ is a term that can be used to express the general concept that an adverse effect could occur, in DOE quantitative assessments it refers to the numeric product of the probability and consequences. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Jul 11, 2016 Jkt 238001 the environmentally preferable alternative. Amended Decision NNSA has decided to continue to operate Y–12 to meet the stockpile stewardship mission critical activities assigned to the site. NNSA will meet EU requirements using the proposed action described in Section 3.0 of the SA. That proposed action is a hybrid approach of upgrading existing EU buildings and separating the single-structure UPF into multiple buildings, with each constructed to safety and security requirements appropriate to the building’s function. Basis for Decision National security policies continue to require NNSA to maintain the nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile, as well as its core technical competencies and capabilities. As was the case when NNSA issued its Record of Decision for the Y–12 SWEIS in 2011, NNSA’s decisions are based on its mission responsibilities and its need to sustain Y–12’s ability to operate in a manner that allows it to fulfill its responsibilities in an environmentally sound, timely, and fiscally prudent manner. NNSA continues to require Y– 12 EU processing facilities to provide reliable, long-term enriched uranium processing capability with modern technologies and equipment, improved security posture for Special Nuclear Material; reduced accident risks; improved health and safety for workers and the public; improved operational efficiency; and reduction in the cost of operating and maintaining key facilities. This amended decision will enable NNSA to maintain the required expertise and capabilities to deliver uranium products while modernizing production facilities. This amended decision will also avoid many of the safety risks of operating aged buildings and equipment by relocating processes that cannot be sustained in existing, enduring buildings. It will also allow NNSA to reduce the risks of EU operations through process improvements enabled by NNSA’s investments in developing new technologies to apply in Y–12 facilities. Through an extended life program, mission-critical existing and enduring buildings and infrastructure will be maintained and/or upgraded, further enhancing safety and security at the Y– 12 site. Mitigation Measures Y–12 will continue to operate in compliance with environmental laws, regulations, policies, and within a PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 framework of contractual requirements. In the 2011 ROD, NNSA adopted the measures identified in the 2011 Y–12 SWEIS, to avoid, minimize and mitigate environmental impacts from the Capability-sized UPF Alternative (Alternative 4). NNSA will continue to impose contractual requirements for actions necessary to comply with the identified mitigation measures. Additionally, as a result of consultations with the USFWS, NNSA is extending by one month the time frame for tree cutting restrictions, established for the protection of roosting and swarming bats. These contractually required restrictions will now remain in effect annually from March 31st through November 15th. Issued in Washington, DC, on July 5th, 2016. Frank G. Klotz, Under Secretary for Nuclear Security Administrator, National Nuclear Security Administration.
