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 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 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–2021–0074.

The NRC’s review and approval of Florida Power & Light Company’s initial and NextEra Energy’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 Florida Power & Light Company’s initial and NextEra Energy’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 scope of the proposed action concerns only the NRC’s review and approval of Florida Power & Light Company’s initial and NextEra Energy’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 Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4. Therefore, the NRC staff determined that approval of the initial and updated DFPs for the Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4 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. FPL, 2012. ISFSI DFPs, dated December 17, 2012. ADAMS Accession No. ML12354A134. FPL, 2014.

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 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 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-2021-0074. For 
additional direction on accessing information related to this document,

 Proposed Action.               proposed action, the review and approval
                                of Florida Power & Light Company's
                                initial and NextEra Energy'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 Florida Power & Light
                                Company's initial and NextEra Energy'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 Turkey
                                Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4.
                                Therefore, the NRC staff determined that
                                approval of the initial and updated DFPs
                                for the Turkey Point Nuclear Generating
                                Units 3 and 4 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.

                                activities. The scope of the proposed
                                action concerns only the NRC's review
                                and approval of Florida Power & Light

                                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 St.
                                Lucie Plant Units 1 and 2. Therefore,
                                the NRC staff determined that approval
                                of the initial and updated DFPs for the
                                St. Lucie Plant Units 1 and 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.

 Proposed Action.               proposed action, the review and approval
                                of Florida Power & Light Company's
                                initial and NextEra Energy'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-

                                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 Florida Power & Light
                                Company's initial and NextEra Energy'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 Duane
                                Arnold Energy Center. Therefore, the NRC
                                staff determined that approval of the
                                initial and updated DFPs for the Duane
                                Arnold Energy Center 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.
