II. Introduction and Solicitation of Comments

    The NRC has received, by letter dated September 18, 2013, an 
application to amend Source Materials License No. SUA-1475 (the UNC 
license) for the UNC Church Rock Mill site located in New Mexico (ADAMS 
Accession Nos. ML13277A287, ML13266A361). Specifically, UNC, a 
subsidiary of General Electric (GE), requested to extend the projected 
dates for (1) the completion of groundwater corrective actions, and (2) 
the emplacement of the final radon barrier and erosion protection for 
the UNC Church Rock Mill Site. On November 7, 2013, the NRC issued 
License Amendment No. 48, subsequently corrected by License Amendment 
No. 49 (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML13277A287 and ML14043A475), granting the 
licensee's request regarding its groundwater corrective actions. 
However, prior to making a final determination on the UNC's second 
request to extend the date for emplacing the final radon barrier and 
the erosion protection, the NRC is providing an opportunity for public 
participation required under Criterion 6A(2) of Appendix A to Title 10 
of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 40, through the provision of 
this opportunity to provide comments. Specific comments are requested 
on the requested changes to License Conditions 35.A(3) and 35.B(1), 
which would extend the date for emplacement of the final radon barrier 
and the erosion protection from December 31, 2014 to December 31, 2019. 
Comments should be provided within 30 days of the publication date of 
this notice.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland this 17th day of April 2014.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Andrew Persinko,
Deputy Director, Decommissioning and Uranium Recovery Licensing 
Directorate, Division of Waste Management and Environmental Protection, 
Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management 
Programs.
