III. Discussion

    The NRC is issuing for public comment the draft EIS for WEC's 
license renewal application, which includes the NRC staff's analysis 
that evaluates the environmental impacts of the proposed action and 
alternatives to the proposed action. Based on the NRC staff's (i) 
review of the license renewal application request, which includes the 
environmental report, supplemental documents, and the licensee's 
responses to the NRC staff's requests for additional information; (ii) 
consultation with Federal, State, and Tribal agencies and input from 
other stakeholders; and (iii) independent review as documented in the 
assessments summarized in the draft EIS, the NRC staff has concluded 
that the proposed action would result in small impacts on all resource 
areas except for groundwater resources for which the impacts would be 
small to moderate.
