SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The NRC is considering the approval of the initial DFP submitted by ISFSI licensees. The NRC staff has prepared a final EA and FONSI determination for each of the initial ISFSI DFPs in accordance with the NRC regulations in part 51 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Environmental Protection Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory Functions,’’ which implement the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). The NRC requires its licensees to plan for the eventual decommissioning of their licensed facilities prior to license termination. On June 17, 2011, the NRC published a final rule in the Federal Register amending its decommissioning planning regulations (76 FR 35512). The final rule amended the NRC regulation, 10 CFR 72.30, which concerns financial assurance and decommissioning for ISFSIs. This regulation requires each holder of, or applicant for, a license under 10 CFR part 72 to submit a DFP for the NRC’s review and approval. The DFP is to demonstrate the licensee’s financial assurance, i.e., that funds will be available to decommission the ISFSI. The NRC staff will later publish its financial analyses of the DFP submittals which will be available for public inspection in ADAMS. II. Discussion The following table includes the plant name, docket number, licensee, and ADAMS Accession Number for the final EA and FONSI determination for each of the individual ISFSIs. The table also includes the ADAMS Accession Numbers for other relevant documents, including the initial and updated DFP submittals. For further details with E:\FR\FM\12APN1.SGM 12APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 68 / Monday, April 12, 2021 / Notices respect to these actions, see the NRC staff’s final EA and FONSI determinations which are available for public inspection in ADAMS and at https://www.regulations.gov under Docket ID NRC–2021–0073.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT Facility Crystal River Unit 3 nuclear generating plant Docket No ............................ Licensee ............................... Proposed Action ................... Environmental Impact of Proposed Action. 72–1035. Duke Energy Florida, LLC (DEF). The NRC’s review and approval of DEF’s initial DFP submitted in accordance with 10 CFR 72.30(b). The NRC staff has determined that the proposed action, the review and approval of DEF’s initial DFP, submitted in accordance with 10 CFR 72.30(b), will not authorize changes to licensed operations or maintenance activities, or result in changes in the types, characteristics, or quantities of radiological or non-radiological effluents released into the environment from the ISFSI, or result in the creation of solid waste. Moreover, the approval of the initial DFP will not authorize any construction activity, facility modification, or other land-disturbing activity. The NRC staff has concluded that the proposed action is a procedural and administrative action that will not have a significant impact on the environment. The proposed action does not require changes to the ISFSI’s licensed routine operations, maintenance activities, or monitoring programs, nor does it require new construction or land-disturbing activities. The scope of the proposed action concerns only the NRC’s review and approval of DEF’s initial DFP. The scope of the proposed action does not include, and will not result in, the review and approval of decontamination or decommissioning activities or license termination for the ISFSI or for other parts of Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear Generating Plant. Therefore, the NRC staff determined that approval of the initial DFP for the Crystal River ISFSI will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment, and accordingly, the staff has concluded that a FONSI is appropriate. The NRC staff further finds that preparation of an environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required. Duke Energy, 2017. Crystal River Unit 3 DFP for ISFSIs, dated May 15, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The NRC is considering the approval of the initial DFP submitted by 
ISFSI licensees. The NRC staff has prepared a final EA and FONSI 
determination for each of the initial ISFSI DFPs in accordance with the 
NRC regulations in part 51 of title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), ``Environmental Protection Regulations for 
Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory Functions,'' which implement 
the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 
4321 et seq.).
    The NRC requires its licensees to plan for the eventual 
decommissioning of their licensed facilities prior to license 
termination. On June 17, 2011, the NRC published a final rule in the 
Federal Register amending its decommissioning planning regulations (76 
FR 35512). The final rule amended the NRC regulation, 10 CFR 72.30, 
which concerns financial assurance and decommissioning for ISFSIs. This 
regulation requires each holder of, or applicant for, a license under 
10 CFR part 72 to submit a DFP for the NRC's review and approval. The 
DFP is to demonstrate the licensee's financial assurance, i.e., that 
funds will be available to decommission the ISFSI. The NRC staff will 
later publish its financial analyses of the DFP submittals which will 
be available for public inspection in ADAMS.

II. Discussion

    The following table includes the plant name, docket number, 
licensee, and ADAMS Accession Number for the final EA and FONSI 
determination for each of the individual ISFSIs. The table also 
includes the ADAMS Accession Numbers for other relevant documents, 
including the initial and updated DFP submittals. For further details

                                parts of Crystal River Unit 3 Nuclear
                                Generating Plant. Therefore, the NRC
                                staff determined that approval of the
                                initial DFP for the Crystal River ISFSI
                                will not significantly affect the
                                quality of the human environment, and
                                accordingly, the staff has concluded
                                that a FONSI is appropriate. The NRC
                                staff further finds that preparation of
                                an environmental impact statement (EIS)
                                is not required.

Licensee.....................  Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).
Proposed Action..............  The NRC's review and approval of TVA's
                                initial DFP submitted in accordance with
                                10 CFR 72.30(b).
Environmental Impact of        The NRC staff has determined that the
 Proposed Action.               proposed action, the review and approval
                                of TVA's initial DFP, submitted in
                                accordance with 10 CFR 72.30(b), will
                                not authorize changes to licensed
                                operations or maintenance activities, or
                                result in changes in the types,
                                characteristics, or quantities of
                                radiological or non-radiological
                                effluents released into the environment
                                from the ISFSI, or result in the
                                creation of solid waste. Moreover, the
                                approval of the initial DFP will not
                                authorize any construction activity,
                                facility modification, or other land-
                                disturbing activity. The NRC staff has
                                concluded that the proposed action is a
                                procedural and administrative action
                                that will not have a significant impact
                                on the environment.
Finding of No Significant      The proposed action does not require
 Impact.                        changes to the ISFSI's licensed routine
                                operations, maintenance activities, or
                                monitoring programs, nor does it require
                                new construction or land-disturbing
                                activities. The scope of the proposed
                                action concerns only the NRC's review
                                and approval of TVA's initial DFP. The
                                scope of the proposed action does not
                                include, and will not result in, the
                                review and approval of decontamination
                                or decommissioning activities or license
                                termination for the ISFSI or for other
                                parts of Watts Bar Nuclear Plant, Units
                                1 and 2. Therefore, the NRC staff
                                determined that approval of the initial
                                DFP for the Watts Bar ISFSI will not
                                significantly affect the quality of the
                                human environment, and accordingly, the
                                staff has concluded that a FONSI is
                                appropriate. The NRC staff further finds
                                that preparation of an environmental
                                impact statement (EIS) is not required.
