Office of New Reactors: Interim Staff Guidance on Assessing Ground Water Flow and Transport of Accidental Radionuclide Releases; Solicitation of Public Comment
Document Number: 2010-3679
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-02-24
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is soliciting public comment on its Proposed Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) DC/COL-ISG-014 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML091320560). The purpose of this ISG is to provide Combined License (COL) and Design Certification (DC) applicants additional clarity and guidance for the application of Sections 2.4.12 and 2.4.13 of the Standard Review Plan (SRP), NUREG 0800 ``Standard Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants.'' Specifically, this ISG would revise the staff guidance in SRP Sections 2.4.12 and 2.4.13 regarding the assessment of ground water flow and transport of accidental radionuclide releases necessary to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 100 (10 CFR 100) and Appendix B to 10 CFR part 20 on effluent concentration limits. The NRC staff issues DC/COL-ISGs to facilitate timely implementation of current staff guidance and to facilitate activities associated with review of applications for DCs and COLs by the Office of New Reactors. The NRC staff will also incorporate the approved DC/ COL-ISG-014 into the next revision of the SRP and related guidance documents.
Office of New Reactors: Interim Staff Guidance on Assessing the Consequences of an Accidental Release of Radioactive Materials From Liquid Waste Tanks; Reopening of Comment Period
Document Number: 2010-3676
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-02-24
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC published a request for public comment in the Federal Register on May 4, 2009, on proposed Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) DC/ COL-ISG-013, ``Assessing the Consequences of an Accidental Release of Radioactive Materials from Liquid Waste Tanks'' (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML090830488). The NRC has completed a related ISG, DC/COL-ISG-014, ``Assessing Ground Water Flow and Transport of Accidental Radionuclide Releases,'' and is making it available for public comment by separate document published today in the Federal Register. The NRC believes that the public will be better served by being able to review and comment on both documents at this time. This action is necessary to reopen the comment period for ISG DC/COL-ISG-013.
