Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing an Addendum to the supplement to the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Diablo Canyon Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI). NRC issued the EA and initial Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for this action on October 24, 2003, and subsequently issued a license for the Diablo Canyon ISFSI to the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), on March 22, 2004. The license authorizes PG&E to receive, possess, store, and transfer spent nuclear fuel and associated radioactive materials resulting from the operation of the Diablo Canyon Power Plant in an ISFSI at the site for a term of 20 years. On August 30, 2007, NRC issued a supplement to the EA and final FONSI, in response to the June 2, 2006, decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace v. NRC, 449 F.3d 1016 (9th Cir. 2006). The supplement to the EA addressed the environmental impacts from potential terrorist acts against the Diablo Canyon ISFSI. The Addendum lists six documents to be added to the list of references provided in the supplement to the EA.

The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: New collection. 2. The title of the information collection: NRC Survey of Public Response to Emergencies. 3. The form number if applicable: N/A. 4. How often the collection is required: This is a one-time collection. 5. Who will be required or asked to report: Members of the public that reside within the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zones (EPZs) of nuclear power plants. 6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 920 (each respondent will answer one survey). 7. The estimated number of annual respondents: This is a one-time collection of 800 completed surveys. 8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 210 hours ((800 completed surveys x .25 hours per response = 200 hours) + (120 uncompleted surveys x .083 hours per response = 10 hours)). 9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Public Law 104-13 applies: N/A. 10. Abstract: As part of the NRC's effort to review and improve emergency response program areas, the NRC intends to conduct a telephone survey to assess public reaction to existing protective action strategies, new protective action strategies, and the effectiveness in which these strategies are conveyed to the public. The survey will produce statistical descriptions of likely public reaction to and acceptance of various protective action strategies. The targets for the telephone survey are randomly selected members of the public that reside within the 10-mile EPZs around nuclear power plants. This is a nationwide survey of the public residing within EPZs. The response to the surveys will be used by the NRC in the development of enhancements to its guidance for nuclear power plant protective action recommendations and the means by which this information is disseminated. The survey will also improve the understanding of other areas related to protective action implementation, such as the extent of shadow evacuations and the expected usage of congregate care facilities. A copy of the final supporting statement may be viewed free of charge at the NRC Public Document Room, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Room O-1F21, Rockville, MD 20852.
