Download as PDF 33160 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 137 / Wednesday, July 19, 2017 / Notices statement (EIS) for the amendment, and is issuing a FONSI. II. Environmental Assessment Description of the Proposed Action The proposed action would amend License Condition 11.3 (A) and (B) of Strata’s Ross license. Strata’s amendment request consists of modifying the minimum density requirement in a wellfield baseline monitoring program and the distance to and spacing of wells on the perimeter monitoring well ring (ADAMS Accession No. ML16004A032). Need for the Proposed Action The proposed action would allow Strata flexibility in the placement of wells to avoid certain natural features and infrastructure. Environmental Impacts of the Proposed Action The NRC assessed the environmental impacts to ground water as a result of amending License Condition 11.3 (A) and (B) and determined that there would be no significant impact to ground-water quality. The NRC determined the proposed changes to the License Condition—changes to well density requirements and distance to and spacing of wells in perimeter monitoring well ring—would still maintain Strata’s ability to develop appropriate baseline and restoration data and continue the timely and accurate identification of ground-water excursions. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES As an alternative to the proposed action, the NRC staff considered denial of the proposed action (i.e., the ‘‘noaction’’ alternative). The No-Action Alternative would mean that the NRC would not approve the requested change to License Condition 11.3 (A) and (B). The No-Action alternative would result in Strata operating the Ross project as currently licensed, thus the impacts would be the same as those already considered in the Ross Supplemental EIS (ADAMS Accession No. ML14056A096). Agencies and Persons Consulted On June 14, 2017, the NRC staff sent a copy of the draft EA to the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) for their review and comment. The state official responded on July 6, 2017, that DEQ had reviewed the EA and did not have any comments (ADAMS Accession No. ML17191A327). 18:49 Jul 18, 2017 Jkt 241001 Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 12th day of July 2017.

ACTION: Notice of process change; issuance. AGENCY: Environmental Impacts of the Alternatives to the Proposed Action VerDate Sep<11>2014 III. Finding of No Significant Impact Based on its review of the proposed action, and in accordance with the requirements in 10 CFR part 51, the NRC staff has determined that amending License Condition 11.3(A) and (B) for the Ross ISR project would not significantly affect ground-water quality. The NRC staff has determined that pursuant to 10 CFR 51.31, preparation of an EIS is not required for the proposed action and, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.32, a FONSI is appropriate. On the basis of the final EA, the NRC concludes that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Accordingly, the NRC has determined not to prepare an EIS for the proposed action. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a notice regarding a process change.
