NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket No. 50-346; NRC-2010-0298]


License Renewal Application for Davis-Besse Nuclear Power 
Station, Unit 1

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Draft supplemental generic environmental impact statement; 
issuance, public meeting, and request for comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for 
public comment a draft plant-specific Supplement 52 to the ``Generic 
Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) for License Renewal of Nuclear 
Plants,'' NUREG-1437, regarding the renewal of operating license NPF-3 
for an additional 20 years of operation for Davis-Besse Nuclear Power 
Station, Unit 1 (Davis-Besse). Davis-Besse is located in Ottawa County, 
Ohio. Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) 
include no action and reasonable alternative energy sources. The NRC 
staff plans to hold two public meetings during the public comment 
period to present an overview of the draft plant-specific supplement to 
the

II. Discussion

    The NRC is issuing for public comment a draft plant-specific 
Supplement 52 to the GEIS, regarding the renewal of operating license 
NPF-3 for an additional 20 years of operation for Davis-Besse. 
Supplement 52 to the GEIS includes the preliminary analysis that 
evaluates the environmental impacts of the proposed action and 
alternatives to the proposed action. The NRC's preliminary 
recommendation is that the adverse environmental impacts of license 
renewal for Davis-Besse are not great enough to deny the option of 
license renewal for energy planning decisionmakers.

III. Public Meetings

    The NRC staff will hold public meetings prior to the close of the 
public comment period to present an overview of the draft plant-
specific supplement to the GEIS and to accept public comment on the 
document. Two meetings will be held at the Camp Perry Conference 
Center, 1000 Lawrence Road, Bldg. 600, Port Clinton, Ohio 43453 on 
Tuesday, March 25, 2014. The first session will convene at 2:00 p.m. 
and will continue until 4:00 p.m., as necessary. The second session 
will convene at 7:00 p.m. and will continue until 9:00 p.m., as 
necessary. The meetings will be transcribed and will include: (1) A 
presentation of the contents of the draft plant-specific supplement to 
the GEIS, and (2) the opportunity for interested government agencies, 
organizations, and individuals to provide comments on the draft report. 
Additionally, the NRC staff will host informal discussions one hour 
prior to the start of each session at the same location. No comments on 
the draft supplement to the GEIS will be accepted during the informal 
discussions. To be considered, comments must be provided either at the 
transcribed public meeting or in writing. Persons may pre-register to 
attend or present oral comments at the meeting by contacting Elaine 
Keegan, the NRC Environmental Project Manager, at 1-800-368-5642, 
extension 8517, or by email at Elaine.Keegan@nrc.gov no later than 
Wednesday, March 19, 2014. Members of the public may also register to 
provide oral comments within 15 minutes of the start of each session. 
Individual oral comments may be limited by the time available, 
depending on the number of persons who register. If special equipment 
or accommodations are needed to attend or present information at the 
public meeting, the need should be brought to Ms. Keegan's attention no 
later than Monday, March 10, 2014, to provide the NRC staff adequate 
notice to determine whether the request can be accommodated.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 24th day of February, 2014.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
