Instructions for Completing NRC's Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest, 65759-65760 [2018-27630]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 245 / Friday, December 21, 2018 / Notices facilities that are either in design or construction. These stages require the highest level of reporting and management documentation per the Major Facilities Guide. NSF estimates there will be four (4) mid-scale projects in progress at a given time. Burden to the Public: The Foundation estimates that approximately five (5) Full Time Equivalents (FTE’s) are necessary for each major facility project in design or construction to respond to NSF performance and financial reporting and project management documentation requirements on an annual basis; or 10,400 hours per year. The Foundation estimates approximately one and half (1.5) FTE for a major facility in operations to respond to NSF performance and financial reporting on an annual basis; or 3,120 hours per year. For mid-scale projects, the Foundation estimates approximately one (1) Full Time Equivalent (FTE’s) is necessary for each mid-scale project to respond to NSF project management documentation requirements on an annual basis; or 2,080 hours per year. With seven (7) major facilities in design or construction and twenty-one (21) in operations and four (4) mid-scale projects, this equates to roughly 150,000 public burden hours annually.

The facility consists of one boiling-water reactor located in Plymouth, Massachusetts. By letter dated November 10, 2015 (ADAMS Accession No. ML15328A053), the licensee submitted Notification of Permanent Cessation of Power Operations for Pilgrim. In this letter, Entergy notified the NRC of its intent to permanently cease operations at Pilgrim no later than June 1, 2019. On November 16, 2018, Entergy submitted the PSDAR including and the DCE for Pilgrim in accordance with § 50.82(a)(4)(i) of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (ADAMS Accession No. ML18320A034). The PSDAR includes a description of the planned decommissioning activities, a proposed schedule for their accomplishment, the DCE, and a discussion that provides the basis for concluding that the environmental impacts associated with the site-specific decommissioning activities will be bounded by appropriate, previously issued generic and plant-specific environmental impact statements. III. Request for Comment and Public Meeting The NRC is requesting public comments on the PSDAR including the DCE for Pilgrim. The NRC will conduct a public meeting to discuss the PSDAR including the DCE and receive comments on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., at the Hotel 1620, 180 Water Street, Plymouth, Massachusetts 02360.
