II. Discussion

    On August 6, 2021, the NRC issued 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.
    The public comment period closed on September 20, 2021 (86 FR 
43276). The NRC received requests from members of the public and state-
elected officials to extend the comment period. After considering these 
requests, the NRC has decided to re-open the comment period to allow 
more time for the public to submit comments on the draft EIS. Comments 
should be submitted by November 19, 2021, to ensure consideration.
