The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing Revision 3 to Regulatory Guide (RG)1.91, ``Evaluations of Explosions Postulated to Occur at Nearby Facilities and on Transportation Routes Near Nuclear Power Plants.'' The revision of RG 1.91 describes methods that the NRC finds acceptable for applicants and licensees of nuclear power reactors to use in evaluating postulated accidental explosions at nearby facilities and transportation routes.
Holtec Decommissioning International, LLC, Palisades Nuclear Plant
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering issuance of an exemption in response to the December 23, 2020, request from Holtec Decommissioning International, LLC (HDI) related Palisades Nuclear Plant (PNP), located in Van Buren County, Michigan. The exemption would permit HDI to use funds from the PNP nuclear decommissioning trust (NDT) for spent fuel management and site restoration activities for PNP. The exemption would also allow such withdrawals without prior notification to the NRC. The NRC staff is issuing an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) associated with the proposed exemption.
