Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 22 / Friday, February 1, 2019 / Notices is available on the NRC’s public Web site at https://www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html. Once a participant has obtained a digital ID certificate and a docket has been created, the participant can then submit a request for hearing or petition for leave to intervene through the EIE System. Submissions should be in Portable Document Format (PDF) in accordance with NRC guidance available on the NRC public Web site at https://www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html. A filing is considered complete at the time the documents are submitted through the NRC’s E-Filing system. To be timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the E-Filing system no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of a transmission, the E-Filing system time-stamps the document and sends the submitter an e-mail notice confirming receipt of the document. The E-Filing system also distributes an email notice that provides access to the document to the NRC Office of the General Counsel and any others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the documents on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for and receive a digital ID certificate before a hearing request/ petition to intervene is filed so that they can obtain access to the document via the E-Filing system. A person filing electronically using the agency’s adjudicatory E-Filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC Electronic Filing Help Desk through the ‘‘Contact Us’’ link located on the NRC Web site at https://www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html, by e-mail at MSHD.Resource@nrc.gov, or by a tollfree call at (866) 672–7640. The NRC Electronic Filing Help Desk is available between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays. Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not submitting documents electronically must file an exemption request, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing stating why there is good cause for not filing electronically and requesting authorization to continue to submit documents in paper format. Such filings must be submitted by: (1) first class mail addressed to the Office of the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff; or (2) courier, VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:23 Jan 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 express mail, or expedited delivery service to the Office of the Secretary, Sixteenth Floor, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, 20852, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff. Participants filing a document in this manner are responsible for serving the document on all other participants. Filing is considered complete by firstclass mail as of the time of deposit in the mail, or by courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service upon depositing the document with the provider of the service. A presiding officer, having granted an exemption request from using E-Filing, may require a participant or party to use E-Filing if the presiding officer subsequently determines that the reason for granting the exemption from use of E-Filing no longer exists. Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in NRC’s electronic hearing docket which is available to the public at https:// adams.nrc.gov/ehd/, unless excluded pursuant to an order of the Commission, or the presiding officer. Participants are requested not to include personal privacy information, such as social security numbers, home addresses, or home phone numbers in their filings, unless an NRC regulation or other law requires submission of such information.

Introduction Notice is hereby given that the NRC has issued Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF–38 to Entergy Operations, Inc. (EOI), the operator of Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 (WF3), and Entergy Louisiana, LLC (together Entergy or the licensees). Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF–38 authorizes EOI to operate WF3 at reactor core power levels not in excess of 3,716 megawatts thermal, in accordance with the provisions of the WF3 renewed license and technical specifications. The NRC’s record of decision that supports the decision to issue Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF–38 is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18275A234. The NRC documented its environmental review for the license renewal in the record of decision and in the final supplemental environmental impact statement (FSEIS), which was published as Supplement 59, ‘‘Regarding Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3, Final Report,’’ November 20, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18323A103), to NUREG–1437, ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants.’’ As part of its environmental review, the NRC considered a range of reasonable alternatives to WF3 license renewal that included new nuclear power generation, supercritical pulverized coal (SCPC), natural gas combined-cycle (NGCC), and a combination alternative (NGCC, biomass, and demand-side management (DSM)). The NRC also considered the no-action alternative, or simply not issuing the renewed license. The FSEIS documents the environmental review, including the determination that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for WF3 are not so great that preserving the option of license VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:23 Jan 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 renewal for energy planning decisionmakers would be unreasonable. WF3 is a pressurized-water reactor located in Killona, St. Charles Parish, Louisiana (25 miles west of New Orleans, LA). The application for the renewed license, ‘‘License Renewal Application, Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 Facility Operating License MPF–38, March 2016,’’ dated March 23, 2016 (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML16088A324), as supplemented by letters dated through June 26, 2018, complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the NRC’s regulations. As required by the Act and the NRC’s regulations in chapter 1 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC has made appropriate findings, which it has set forth in the renewed license. The NRC published a public notice of the proposed issuance of the renewed license, which included an opportunity for a hearing, in the Federal Register on May 31, 2016 (81 FR 34379). No adjudicatory matters are pending before the Commission or the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel regarding the WF3 license renewal application. For further details with respect to this action, see: (1) Entergy’s license renewal application for WF3 dated March 23, 2016 (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML16088A324), as supplemented by letters through June 26, 2018, (2) the NRC’s safety evaluation report published on August 17, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18228A668), (3) the NRC’s final supplemental environmental impact statement (NUREG–1437, Supplement 59) for WF3 published on November 20, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18323A103), and (4) the NRC’s record of decision (ADAMS Accession No. ML18275A234). II. Conclusion As discussed in Chapter 5 of the final supplemental environmental impact statement for the WF3 license renewal (Supplement 59 to NUREG–1437), the NRC has 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    Notice is hereby given that the NRC has issued Renewed Facility 
Operating License No. NPF-38 to Entergy Operations, Inc. (EOI), the 
operator of Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 (WF3), and Entergy 
Louisiana, LLC (together Entergy or the licensees). Renewed Facility 
Operating License No. NPF-38 authorizes EOI to operate WF3 at reactor 
core power levels not in excess of 3,716 megawatts thermal, in 
accordance with the provisions of the WF3 renewed license and technical 
specifications. The NRC's record of decision that supports the decision 
to issue Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF-38 is available in 
ADAMS under Accession No. ML18275A234. The NRC documented its 
environmental review for the license renewal in the record of decision 
and in the final supplemental environmental impact statement (FSEIS), 
which was published as Supplement 59, ``Regarding Waterford Steam 
Electric Station, Unit 3, Final Report,'' November 20, 2018 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML18323A103), to NUREG-1437, ``Generic Environmental 
Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants.'' As part of 
its environmental review, the NRC considered a range of reasonable 
alternatives to WF3 license renewal that included new nuclear power 
generation, supercritical pulverized coal (SCPC), natural gas combined-
cycle (NGCC), and a combination alternative (NGCC, biomass, and demand-
side management (DSM)). The NRC also considered the no-action 
alternative, or simply not issuing the renewed license. The FSEIS 
documents the environmental review, including the determination 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.
    WF3 is a pressurized-water reactor located in Killona, St. Charles 
Parish, Louisiana (25 miles west of New Orleans, LA). The application 
for the renewed license, ``License Renewal Application, Waterford Steam 
Electric Station, Unit 3 Facility Operating License MPF-38, March 
2016,'' dated March 23, 2016 (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML16088A324), 
as supplemented by letters dated through June 26, 2018, complies with 
the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as 
amended (the Act), and the NRC's regulations. As required by the Act 
and the NRC's regulations in chapter 1 of title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC has made appropriate findings, 
which it has set forth in the renewed license. The NRC published a 
public notice of the proposed issuance of the renewed license, which 
included an opportunity for a hearing, in the Federal Register on May 
31, 2016 (81 FR 34379). No adjudicatory matters are pending before the 
Commission or the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel regarding the 
WF3 license renewal application.
    For further details with respect to this action, see: (1) Entergy's 
license renewal application for WF3 dated March 23, 2016 (ADAMS Package 
Accession No. ML16088A324), as supplemented by letters through June 26, 
2018, (2) the NRC's safety evaluation report published on August 17, 
2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18228A668), (3) the NRC's final 
supplemental environmental impact statement (NUREG-1437, Supplement 59) 
for WF3 published on November 20, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML18323A103), and (4) the NRC's record of decision (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML18275A234).

II. Conclusion

    As discussed in Chapter 5 of the final supplemental environmental 
impact statement for the WF3 license renewal (Supplement 59 to NUREG-
1437), the NRC has 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 Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License 
Renewal of Nuclear Plants, (2) information provided in the 
environmental report submitted by Entergy, (3) consultation with 
Federal, State, local, and Tribal agencies, and (4) the NRC staff's 
independent environmental review.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 28th day of January 2019.
