By letter dated January 12, 2017, UB submitted the FSS Report for the BMRC and requested the termination of Facility Operating License No. R–77 (ADAMS Accession No. ML17039A897). The NRC staff reviewed the FSS Report, which states that the criteria for termination set forth in UB’s license, and as established in its DP and FSS Plan, have been satisfied. Supplemental information was provided in an email from the licensee dated February 13, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18075A415), which addressed additional questions and items requiring clarification that were provided to the licensee. Throughout the decommissioning process, inspectors from the NRC’s Region I office conducted routine safety inspections at the BMRC, as documented in the following NRC Inspection Reports (IRs): IR 050–00057/ 2015–001 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16007A027), IR 050–00057/2014– 001 (ADAMS Accession No. ML15027A411), IR 050–00057/2013– 003 (ADAMS Accession No. ML14219A022), IR 050–00057/2013– 002 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13204A096), and IR 050–00057/ 2013–001 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13106A379). The inspections consisted of observations by the inspectors, interviews with BMRC and contractor personnel, confirmatory measurements, collection of soil samples, and a review of work plans and work instructions. The NRC inspections also verified that radioactive waste associated with the decommissioning project had been shipped offsite and that the decommissioning and final status survey activities were being conducted safely and in accordance with regulatory requirements, licensee commitments, and the NRC-approved DP. No health or safety concerns were identified during the NRC inspections. During the periods of January 26–29, February 3–6, and August 17–21, 2015, the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) performed confirmatory surveys in support of the BMRC excavation, which included surveys of surrounding soils, backfill material, and soil laydown areas. The survey activities included visual inspections, gamma radiation surface scans, gamma and beta radiation measurements, and soil sampling activities of six FSS units, VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 which were combined into two confirmatory survey units. At the time of confirmatory survey activities, structures associated with the BMRC had been demolished and removed from the site. The site consisted of exposed bedrock where the BMRC facility was located, and the impacted soils surrounding the excavation. The ORAU provided the results of the confirmatory surveys in a report dated January 6, 2016 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16006A200). The ORAU site data support the conclusion that the residual activity levels satisfy the DCGLs. Based on observations during NRC inspections, decommissioning activities have been carried out by UB in accordance with the approved BMRC DP. Additionally, the NRC staff evaluated the licensee’s FSS Report and the results of the independent confirmatory survey conducted by ORAU. Based on the NRC staff’s evaluation of the FSS Report sampling and scanning data, NRC staff inspections, ORAU confirmatory analysis, and comparison to the BMRC reactor DP and FSS Plan criteria, the NRC staff concludes that the BMRC reactor decommissioning has been performed and completed in accordance with the approved DP, and that the facility and site are suitable for unrestricted release in accordance with the radiological criteria for license termination in 10 CFR part 20, subpart E. Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(b)(6), Facility Operating License No. R–77 is terminated. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 6th day of August, 2018. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: INFORMATION CONTACT I. Introduction The NRC is considering issuance of an amendment of License No. SUA–1341, issued to Uranium One, for operation of the Ludeman Satellite, located in Wyoming, Converse County. Therefore, as required by part 51 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC performed an environmental assessment. Based on the results of the environmental assessment, the NRC has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the amendment, and is issuing a finding of no significant impact. II. Environmental Assessment Description of the Proposed Action The proposed action would allow Uranium One to construct, operate, perform aquifer restoration, and decommissioning activities at the Ludeman Satellite. The proposed action is in accordance with the licensee’s application dated December 3, 2011 (ADAMS Accession No. ML120120182). Need for the Proposed Action The proposed action allows Uranium One to recover uranium within the proposed Ludeman Satellite. The licensee would process the recovered uranium into yellowcake at the existing central processing plant (CPP) currently E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1
