Download as PDF 60508 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 227 / Monday, November 26, 2018 / Notices NRC is issuing the final Supplement 59 to the GEIS regarding the renewal of Entergy Operations, Inc. operating license NPF–38 for an additional 20 years of operation for WF3. Draft Supplement 59 to the GEIS was noticed by the NRC in the Federal Register on August 23, 2018 (83 FR 42713), and noticed by the Environmental Protection Agency on August 24, 2018 (83 FR 42892). The public comment period on draft Supplement 59 to the GEIS ended on October 9, 2018, and the comments received are addressed in final Supplement 59 to the GEIS. II. Discussion As discussed in Chapter 5 of the final Supplement 59 to the GEIS, the NRC determined that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for WF3 are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy-planning decisionmakers would be unreasonable. This recommendation is based on: (1) The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2) information provided in the environmental report and other documents submitted by Entergy Operations Inc.; (3) consultation with Federal, State, local, and Tribal agencies; (4) the NRC staff’s independent environmental review; and (5) consideration of public comments received during the scoping process and on the draft supplemental environmental impact statement. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 20th day of November, 2018. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Emmanuel C. Sayoc, Acting Chief, License Renewal Projects Branch, Division of Materials and License Renewal, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.

II. Background The NRC has received two requests for approval of partial site releases from the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD or licensee), by letters dated June 29, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18215A187) and November 12, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18316A036). The requests seek approval for release for unrestricted use of a portion of the Fort Calhoun Station, Unit No. 1 (FCS) site located at 9610 Power Lane, Blair, Nebraska. The first proposed release area is a 120-acre portion on the north E:\FR\FM\26NON1.SGM 26NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 227 / Monday, November 26, 2018 / Notices and west side of the licensee-controlled facility property, wholly within the State of Nebraska. The second proposed release area involves a 475-acre parcel of land north and east of the site, located on the banks of the Missouri River on the Iowa side of the IowaNebraska border, on which the licensee currently has an easement and that is part of the exclusion area of the plant. The FCS license (NRC License No. DPR–40, Docket No. 50–285) is for a power reactor under part 50, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). The facility was certified as permanently shut down, per NRC regulations in 10 CFR 50.82(a), by letter dated November 13, 2016. FCS is currently in ‘‘SAFSTOR’’ decommissioning mode awaiting the termination of the power reactor license. The licensee requests release from the NRC license, for unrestricted use, of two portions of the site under 10 CFR 50.83, ‘‘Release of Part of a Power Reactor Facility or Site for Unrestricted Use.’’ The licensee is declaring these portions of the site to be ‘‘non-impacted’’ as defined in 10 CFR 50.2. Approval of the request would, for example, allow OPPD to sell a released portion to a non-OPPD controlled entity. As described in 10 CFR 50.83(c), the NRC will determine whether the licensee has adequately evaluated the effect of releasing the properties per the requirements of 10 CFR 50.83(a)(1), determine whether the licensee’s classification of any released areas as ‘‘non-impacted’’ is adequately justified, and if the NRC determines that the licensee’s submittal is adequate, the NRC will inform the licensee in writing that the release is approved. The NRC will conduct a public meeting to discuss OPPD’s request for approval of the partial site release. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., Central Standard Time, at the Residence Inn Omaha Downtown/Old Market Area, 106 South 15th St., Omaha, NE 68102. This is a Category 3 public meeting where stakeholders are invited to fully engage NRC staff to provide a range of views, information, concerns and suggestions with regard to regulatory issues. After the licensee and NRC staff presentation portion of the meeting, the public is allowed to speak and ask questions. Comments can be provided orally or in writing to the NRC staff present at the meeting. 17:28 Nov 23, 2018 Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 20th day of November, 2018.

II. Background

    The NRC has received two requests for approval of partial site 
releases from the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD or licensee), by 
letters dated June 29, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18215A187) and 
November 12, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18316A036). The requests seek 
approval for release for unrestricted use of a portion of the Fort 
Calhoun Station, Unit No. 1 (FCS) site located at 9610 Power Lane, 
Blair, Nebraska. The first proposed release area is a 120-acre portion 
on the north

[[Page 60509]]

and west side of the licensee-controlled facility property, wholly 
within the State of Nebraska. The second proposed release area involves 
a 475-acre parcel of land north and east of the site, located on the 
banks of the Missouri River on the Iowa side of the Iowa-Nebraska 
border, on which the licensee currently has an easement and that is 
part of the exclusion area of the plant.
    The FCS license (NRC License No. DPR-40, Docket No. 50-285) is for 
a power reactor under part 50, ``Domestic Licensing of Production and 
Utilization Facilities,'' of title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR). The facility was certified as permanently shut 
down, per NRC regulations in 10 CFR 50.82(a), by letter dated November 
13, 2016. FCS is currently in ``SAFSTOR'' decommissioning mode awaiting 
the termination of the power reactor license.
    The licensee requests release from the NRC license, for 
unrestricted use, of two portions of the site under 10 CFR 50.83, 
``Release of Part of a Power Reactor Facility or Site for Unrestricted 
Use.'' The licensee is declaring these portions of the site to be 
``non-impacted'' as defined in 10 CFR 50.2. Approval of the request 
would, for example, allow OPPD to sell a released portion to a non-OPPD 
controlled entity.
    As described in 10 CFR 50.83(c), the NRC will determine whether the 
licensee has adequately evaluated the effect of releasing the 
properties per the requirements of 10 CFR 50.83(a)(1), determine 
whether the licensee's classification of any released areas as ``non-
impacted'' is adequately justified, and if the NRC determines that the 
licensee's submittal is adequate, the NRC will inform the licensee in 
writing that the release is approved.

III. Public Meeting

    The NRC will conduct a public meeting to discuss OPPD's request for 
approval of the partial site release. The meeting will be held on 
Wednesday, November 28, 2018, from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., Central 
Standard Time, at the Residence Inn Omaha Downtown/Old Market Area, 106 
South 15th St., Omaha, NE 68102.
    This is a Category 3 public meeting where stakeholders are invited 
to fully engage NRC staff to provide a range of views, information, 
concerns and suggestions with regard to regulatory issues. After the 
licensee and NRC staff presentation portion of the meeting, the public 
is allowed to speak and ask questions. Comments can be provided orally 
or in writing to the NRC staff present at the meeting.
    Stakeholders should monitor the NRC's public meeting website for 
information about the public meeting at: http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/public-meetings/index.cfm. The agenda will be posted no later 
than 10 days prior to the meeting.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 20th day of November, 2018.
