Document Number: 2018-05446
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-03-19
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering an application for the renewal of Facility Operating License No. R-125, which authorizes the University of Massachusetts at Lowell (UML or the licensee) to operate the UML Research Reactor (UMLRR) at a maximum steady-state thermal power of 1.0 megawatt (MW).
