Notice of Availability of Secretarial Determination and Basis for Determination for Closure of the H-Tank Farm at the Savannah River Site and the High-Level Waste Tank Closure Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Savannah River Site, Supplement Analysis
Document Number: 2014-30707
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-12-31
Agency: Department of Energy
The Department of Energy (DOE) announces the availability of the Secretary's Section 3116 Determination for Closure of H-Tank Farm at the Savannah River Site and the Basis for Section 3116 Determination for Closure of H-Tank Farm at the Savannah River Site (HTF 3116 Basis Document) concerning closure of the H-Tank Farm (HTF) at the Savannah River Site (SRS). Under Section 3116(a) of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (NDAA), the Secretary of Energy may, in consultation with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), determine that certain waste from the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel is not high-level waste if the provisions set forth in Section 3116(a) are satisfied, specifically that the waste: (1) Does not require permanent isolation in a deep geologic repository for spent fuel or high-level radioactive waste; (2) has had highly radioactive radionuclides removed to the maximum extent practical; and (3)(A) does not exceed concentration limits for Class C low-level waste and will be disposed of in compliance with the performance objectives in 10 CFR part 61, subpart C and pursuant to a State approved closure plan or State-issued permit; or (3)(B) exceeds concentration limits for Class C low-level waste but will be disposed of in compliance with the performance objectives of 10 CFR part 61, subpart C; pursuant to a State-approved closure plan or State-issued permit; and pursuant to plans developed by DOE in consultation with the NRC. For the reasons set forth in the HTF 3116 Basis Document, and based on consultation with the NRC, Secretary of Energy Ernest J. Moniz determined (in the Section 3116 Determination for Closure of H-Tank Farm at the Savannah River Site) that the stabilized residuals, tanks, and ancillary structures at closure in the HTF will meet the criteria in Section 3116(a) of the NDAA, are not high-level radioactive waste, and may be disposed of in place. DOE has also issued the High-Level Waste Tank Closure Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Savannah River Site, Supplement Analysis (Supplement Analysis) which analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with new information and changes in operations for the tank closure process as applied to the F-Area and H- Area Tank Farms at SRS. Based on this Supplement Analysis, DOE has determined that the proposed actions in the FTF and HTF and the tank closure program do not constitute substantial changes from those evaluated in the original High-Level Waste Tank Closure Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Savannah River Site that are relevant to environmental concerns, or significant new circumstances or information relevant to environmental concerns and bearing on the proposed action, and therefore, no further documentation is necessary under the National Environmental Policy Act.

The U.S. Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) is issuing this Record of Decision (ROD) for the continued management, operation, and activities of the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) and Off-Site Locations in the State of Nevada pursuant to the Final Site-Wide Environmental Impact Statement for the Continued Operation of the Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration Nevada National Security Site and Off- Site Locations in the State of Nevada, DOE/EIS-0426 (Final NNSS SWEIS) issued on February 22, 2013. In making its decision, DOE/NNSA considered potential environmental impacts of operations and activities, current and future mission needs, technical and security considerations, availability of resources, and public comments on the Draft and Final NNSS SWEIS. The Final NNSS SWEIS analyzes ongoing and reasonably foreseeable future operations and activities at the NNSS and other DOE/NNSA facilities in Nevada, including the Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSL) at Nellis Air Force Base (NAFB), the North Las Vegas Facility (NLVF), the Tonopah Test Range (TTR), and environmental restoration sites located on the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) (formerly the Nellis Air Force Range). DOE/NNSA has decided to implement the Preferred Alternative, which is identified in the Summary, Table S-1, and Chapter 3, Section 3.4, of the Final NNSS SWEIS. The capabilities, projects, and activities that comprise the elements of DOE/NNSA's decision, and the original alternative from which each is derived, are described in the ``Decision'' section below.

Energy Conservation Program for Certain Industrial Equipment: Energy Conservation Standards for Single Package Vertical Air Conditioners and Single Package Vertical Heat Pumps
Document Number: 2014-29865
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-12-30
Agency: Department of Energy
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including single package vertical air conditioners and single package vertical heat pumps. EPCA also requires that each time the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Standard 90.1 is amended with respect to the standard levels or design requirements applicable to that equipment, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) must adopt amended uniform national standards for this equipment equivalent to those in ASHRAE Standard 90.1, unless DOE determines that there is clear and convincing evidence showing that more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant additional amount of energy. DOE has tentatively concluded that there is sufficient record evidence to support more-stringent standards for two classes of this equipment. However, for four equipment classes, DOE is proposing to adopt the revised ASHRAE levels, due to the absence of any models on the market in two classes, and absence of any models above the revised ASHRAE level in the remaining two classes. Accordingly, DOE is proposing amended energy conservation standards for all classes of single package vertical air conditioners and single package vertical heat pumps. DOE also announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results.
