Issuance of Record of Decision. AGENCY: ACTION: This notice is provided in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations and Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). TVA has decided to construct and operate an onsite landfill at the Shawnee Fossil Plant (SHF). A notice of availability (NOA) of the Final EIS for Shawnee Fossil Plant Coal Combustion Residual (CCR) Management was published in the Federal Register on December 8, 2017. The Final EIS identified TVA’s preferred alternative as Alternative B—Construction of an Onsite CCR Landfill, Closure-in-Place of Ash Impoundment 2 with a reduced footprint, and Closure-in-Place of the former Special Waste Landfill. TVA’s current decision pertains only to the construction of a new onsite CCR landfill, and would achieve part of the project purpose and need by providing additional long-term disposal for dry CCR materials produced at SHF. TVA is electing to further consider the alternatives for closure of Ash Impoundment 2 and the former Special Waste Landfill (SWL) before making a decision. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ashley Pilakowski, Project Environmental Planning, NEPA Specialist, Tennessee Valley Authority, 400 W. Summit Hill Drive, Knoxville, TN 37902; telephone 865–632–2256, or by email aapilakowski@tva.gov. The Final EIS, this Record of Decision and other project documents are available on TVA’s website https://www.tva.gov/ nepa. Currently, SHF consumes an average of 2.7 million cubic yards of coal per year and generates approximately 8 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity a year (enough to supply 540,000 homes). Until December 2017, SHF produced approximately 183,000 cubic yards of coal combustion residuals (CCR) a year. In December 2017, newly installed selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems became operational on SHF Units 1 and 4, increasing the amount of CCR to an estimated 490,000 cubic yards per year. All CCR currently are managed in the existing onsite landfill and Ash Impoundment 2. The CCR generated by SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4115 the plant include fly ash, bottom ash and dry scrubber product. The existing onsite landfill, formerly the Special Waste Landfill (SWL), had a state landfill permit. However, it is now considered a CCR Landfill under a Registered Permit-by-Rule with the Kentucky Division of Waste Management effective September 21, 2017. The estimated remaining capacity for the former SWL is approximately 5.2 million cubic yards. Due to current and projected SHF operations, it is expected the former SWL will reach capacity by 2027. To accommodate the need for additional dry CCR storage at SHF, TVA is proposing to design, build, and operate a new CCR Landfill that would accommodate up to 20 additional years of storage capacity. SHF is expected to produce approximately 490,000 to 910,000 cubic yards of CCR per year until 2040. The low-end of this range is based on the current plant configuration, including the use of SCR and FGD systems on SHF Units 1 and 4. The higher-end of this range provides the maximum CCR output that could be anticipated should TVA elect to explore the option of installing similar emission controls on the other SHF units in the future. At present, TVA has no plans to install such systems. Approximately 10 to 20 million cubic yards of disposal capacity is desired for the 20-year SHF comprehensive disposal plan. The purpose of this action is to support the need for additional capacity for the long-term management of CCR at SHF. Additional storage capacity would also enable TVA to continue operations at SHF as planned and would be consistent with TVA’s voluntary commitment to convert wet CCR management systems to dry systems. Alternatives Considered In 2015, TVA performed a siting study to evaluate onsite and offsite alternatives for the construction of a landfill for storage of dry CCR from SHF. The siting study identified six alternative sites (Options 1 through 6), within 5 to 10 miles of the plant, for the construction and operation of a new CCR Landfill. The siting study also considered the offsite transport of CCR to one of three existing permitted thirdparty landfills as a potential alternative. The impacts of development and/or use of each of the landfill alternatives were further evaluated against environmental and engineering factors to determine those sites that should be carried forward for further analysis in the study. Ultimately, one site for construction and operation of a new CCR Landfill (Option 1) and one existing permitted thirdparty landfill (Freedom Waste Landfill) E:\FR\FM\29JAN1.SGM 29JAN1
