Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Units 2 and 3; South Carolina Electric & Gas Company; Tier 1 Editorial and Consistency Changes
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is granting an exemption to allow a departure from the certification information of Tier 1 of the generic design control document (DCD) and issuing License Amendment No. 15 to Combined Licenses (COL), NPF-93 and NPF-94. The COLs were issued to South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G), and South Carolina Public Service Authority (the licensee), for construction and operation of the Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station (VCSNS), Units 2 and 3 located in Fairfield County, South Carolina. The amendment consists of changes to Figure 2.2.5-1, Tables; 2.6.3-4, 3.5- 3, 3.5-7, 2.2.3-1, 3.5-1, 3.3-6, 2.7.1-4, 2.6.6-1, 2.2.3-4, 2.3.10-2, and 2.1.1-1, and Section 3.2, Item 1.e) of Appendix C to the COLs. The granting of the exemption allows the changes to Tier 1 information asked for in the amendment. Because the acceptability of the exemption was determined in part by the acceptability of the amendment, the exemption and amendment are being issued concurrently.
Jefferson Proving Ground License Amendment Application for Source Materials License
The U.S. Army (Army) submitted a license amendment application, dated August 28, 2013, to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), which included a Decommissioning Plan (DP) and an Environmental Report (ER). The Army submitted the DP and ER in support of its request that the NRC terminate Materials License SUB-1435 for the Depleted Uranium Impact Area at the Jefferson Proving Ground in Madison, Indiana, under restricted conditions. The NRC, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA), and the NRC's regulations, announces its intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the proposed license termination and to conduct a scoping process for the EIS. The NRC invites and encourages members of the public to submit comments on the appropriate scope of issues to be considered in, and the content of the EIS.
