Discussion The NRC is issuing a new guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information regarding methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the NRC staff uses in evaluating specific issues or postulated events, and data that the NRC staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 0 of RG 4.25 was issued with a temporary identification of Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–4025. The guide is being issued to provide guidance to licensees on acceptable methods to determine the quantity of licensed material (i.e., radionuclides) in abnormal discharge into the unrestricted area through the ground water discharge pathway at commercial nuclear power plants. American National Standards Institute/American Nuclear Society (ANSI/ANS)–2.17–2010 (R2016), ‘‘Evaluation of Subsurface Radionuclide Transport at Commercial Nuclear Power Plants,’’ provides such methods.
