Other Alternatives to the Proposed Action—The NRC is considering other alternatives to the proposed action, including the granting of WEC’s license renewal request, but for a period of less than 40 years. Other alternatives not listed here may be identified during scoping or through the EIS development process. II. Discussion IV. Scoping The NRC staff is conducting a scoping process for the WEC CFFF EIS. In accordance with 10 CFR 51.29, the NRC seeks public input to help the NRC determine the appropriate scope of the EIS, including significant environmental issues to be analyzed in depth, as well as those that should be eliminated from detailed study because they are peripheral or are not significant. The NRC previously accepted comments on the draft EA published in October 2019. Those comments can be found at https://www.regulations.gov under Docket ID NRC–2015–0039 or in NRC’s ADAMS Public Documents collection at https://www.nrc.gov/ reading-rm/adams.html, and will be considered in the development of the EIS. After the close of the scoping period, the NRC staff will prepare a concise summary of its scoping process in accordance with 10 CFR 51.29(b). The scoping summary report will be sent to each participant in the scoping process for whom the staff has a physical or email address. The WEC CFFF EIS will address the potential impacts from the proposed action, including both radiological and non-radiological impacts associated with the proposed project and its The NRC intends to prepare an EIS for the WEC license renewal application for its CFFF in accordance with part 51 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) ‘‘Environmental Protection Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory Functions.’’ The NRC will provide the public with an opportunity to participate in the environmental scoping process by inviting them to submit written comments in the scoping period. III. Alternatives To Be Evaluated The EIS will analyze the environmental impacts of the proposed action, the no-action alternative, and reasonable alternatives. A brief description of each is provided below. Proposed action—The proposed Federal action is to renew WEC’s CFFF operating license (SNM–1107) which will allow continued operation of the facility (i.e., fabricating nuclear fuel for nuclear reactors) for an additional 40 years. No-Action Alternative—The no-action alternative would be to not renew WEC’s license. Under this alternative, the NRC would not issue the license renewal and CFFF would continue to alternatives. The EIS will also consider unavoidable adverse environmental impacts, the relationship between shortterm uses of resources and long-term productivity, and irreversible and irretrievable commitments of resources. The following resource areas were addressed in the draft EA and, thus, will be addressed in the EIS: Land use, transportation, geology and soils, water resources, ecological resources, air quality and climate change, noise, historical and cultural resources, visual and scenic resources, socioeconomics, public and occupational health, waste management, accidents, and environmental justice. The NRC encourages members of the public, local, State, Tribal, and Federal government agencies to participate in the scoping process. Written comments may be submitted during the scoping period as described in the ADDRESSES and SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION sections of this document. The NRC staff will continue its environmental review of WEC’s license renewal application, and with an NRC contractor, prepare a draft EIS and publish it for public comment as soon as practicable. The NRC staff plans to have a public comment period for the draft EIS. Availability of the draft EIS and the dates of the public comment period will be announced in a future Federal Register notice. The final EIS will include NRC’s responses to public comments received on the draft EIS. V.
