The petitioner requested that the NRC reconsider approval of License SUC–1593 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16343A164) for possession of DU at four ranges located on PTA, one of the facilities licensed under SUC–1593 paying particular attention to environmental radiation monitoring. The petitioner is concerned about the adequacy of various aspects of the Environmental Radiation Monitoring Program for the licensed DU that is located in the radiation control areas at the PTA, transparency in the licensing of DU at the PTA, and the appropriateness of the DU inventory estimate at the PTA. As the basis for this request, the petitioner identified concerns about the lack of air sampling, the inappropriateness of the location and number of sediment samples, and insufficient geologic sampling procedures for sediment collection for the licensed DU that is located in radiation controlled areas at the PTA. The request is being treated pursuant to section 2.206 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) of the Commission’s regulations. The request has been referred to the Director of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards. The NRC has accepted the following concerns for evaluation under the 10 CFR 2.206 process: D Inappropriate number of sediment samples, D Inappropriate frequency of sediment sampling, D Inappropriate and poorly described analytical techniques (sample analysis methods), D Inappropriate geological sampling procedures for sediment collection, and D Inappropriate data evaluation methods (leading to dilution of samples) to determine the presence of depleted uranium outside the ranges associated with the Pohakuloa Training Area. As provided by 10 CFR 2.206, appropriate action will be taken on this petition within a reasonable time. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 22th day of November 2017.
