Entergy Operations, Inc.; River Bend Station, Unit 1
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering issuance of an amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF- 47, issued to Entergy Operations, Inc. (the licensee), for operation of the River Bend Station, Unit 1. The proposed amendment would extend the implementation time from May 13, 2020, to September 30, 2020, for the NRC-approved license amendment issued May 14, 2019, associated with revising the emergency action levels (EALs) scheme based on Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) guidance. The licensee is requesting this extension due to unforeseen circumstances.
Retrospective Review of Administrative Requirements
On February 4, 2020, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) requested input from its licensees and members of the public to identify outdated or duplicative administrative requirements that may be eliminated without an adverse effect on public health or safety, common defense and security, protection of the environment, or regulatory efficiency and effectiveness. The public comment period originally was scheduled to close on April 6, 2020. The NRC has decided to extend the public comment period to allow more time for members of the public to develop and submit their comments.
