SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The NRC is considering the approval of the initial and updated DFPs submitted by ISFSI licensees. The NRC staff has prepared a final EA and FONSI determination for each of the initial and updated 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 35511). 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 table in this notice 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 E:\FR\FM\30APN1.SGM 30APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 82 / Friday, April 30, 2021 / Notices submittals. For further details with 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–2021–0056.

The NRC’s review and approval of PPL Susquehanna LLC’s initial and Susquehanna Nuclear LLC’s updated DFPs submitted in accordance with 10 CFR 72.30(b) and (c). The NRC staff has determined that the proposed action, the review and approval of PPL Susquehanna LLC’s initial and Susquehanna Nuclear LLC’s updated DFPs, submitted in accordance with 10 CFR 72.30(b) and (c), 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 and updated DFPs 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 PPL Susquehanna LLC’s initial and Susquehanna Nuclear LLC’s updated DFPs. 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 Susquehanna Steam Electric Station. Therefore, the NRC staff determined that approval of the initial and updated DFPs for the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station 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. U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The scope of the proposed action concerns only the NRC’s review and approval of Duke Energy’s DFPs. 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 the H.B. Robinson Steam Electric Plant, Unit 2. Therefore, the NRC staff determined that approval of the initial and updated DFPs for the H.B. Robinson Steam Electric Plant, Unit 2, ISFSI will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment, and accordingly, the staff has concluded that a FONSI is appropriate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The NRC is considering the approval of the initial and updated DFPs 
submitted by ISFSI licensees. The NRC staff has prepared a final EA and 
FONSI determination for each of the initial and updated 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 35511). 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 table in this notice 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 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-2021-0056. For additional direction on accessing

 Proposed Action.               proposed action, the review and approval
                                of PPL Susquehanna LLC's initial and
                                Susquehanna Nuclear LLC's updated DFPs,
                                submitted in accordance with 10 CFR
                                72.30(b) and (c), 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 and updated
                                DFPs 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 PPL Susquehanna LLC's
                                initial and Susquehanna Nuclear LLC's
                                updated DFPs. 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
                                Susquehanna Steam Electric Station.
                                Therefore, the NRC staff determined that
                                approval of the initial and updated DFPs
                                for the Susquehanna Steam Electric
                                Station 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.

                                new construction or land-disturbing
                                activities. The scope of the proposed
                                action concerns only the NRC's review
                                and approval of Duke Energy's DFPs. The
                                scope of the proposed action does not
                                include, and will not result in, the

                                determined that approval of the initial
                                and updated DFPs for the Brunswick Steam
                                Electric Plant ISFSI will not

                                staff has concluded that a FONSI is
                                appropriate. The NRC staff further finds
                                that preparation of an environmental
                                impact statement (EIS) is not required.

                                operations, maintenance activities, or
                                monitoring programs, nor does it require

                                activities. The scope of the proposed
                                action concerns only the NRC's review
                                and approval of Duke Energy's DFPs. The
                                scope of the proposed action does not
                                include, and will not result in, the
                                review and approval of decontamination

                                Therefore, the NRC staff determined that
                                approval of the initial and updated DFPs
                                for the Catawba Nuclear Station ISFSI

                                that a FONSI is appropriate. The NRC
                                staff further finds that preparation of

                                the creation of solid waste. Moreover,
                                the approval of the initial and updated
                                DFPs 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.

 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 Duke Energy's DFPs. 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

                                parts of the McGuire Nuclear Station.
                                Therefore, the NRC staff determined that
                                approval of the initial and updated DFPs
                                for the McGuire Nuclear Station 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.

 Proposed Action.               proposed action, the review and approval
                                of Duke Energy's initial and updated
                                DFPs, submitted in accordance with 10
                                CFR 72.30(b) and (c), will not authorize
                                or 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 and updated
                                DFPs 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 Duke Energy's DFPs. 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 the H.B. Robinson Steam
                                Electric Plant, Unit 2. Therefore, the
                                NRC staff determined that approval of
                                the initial and updated DFPs for the
                                H.B. Robinson Steam Electric Plant, Unit
                                2, 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.
