Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation; R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power 
Plant; Notice of Availability of the Final Supplement 14 to the Generic 
Environmental Impact Statement Regarding License Renewal for the R.E. 
Ginna Nuclear Power Plant

    Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(the Commission) has published a final plant-specific supplement to the 
``Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS)'', NUREG-1437, 
regarding the renewal of operating license DPR-18 for R.E. Ginna 
Nuclear Power Plant (Ginna), for an additional 20 years of operation. 
Ginna is owned

[[Page 5198]]

by Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation (RG & E), and is located in 
Wayne County, New York, approximately 20 miles east of Rochester, New 
York. Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) 
include no action and reasonable alternative methods of power 
    It is stated in Section 9.3 of the report: based on (1) the 
analysis and findings in the GEIS (NRC 1996; 1999); (2) the Ginna ER 
[Environmental Report] (RG & E 2002b); (3) consultation with other 
Federal, State, and local agencies; (4) the staff's own independent 
review; and (5) the staff's consideration of the public comments 
received, the recommendation of the staff is that the Commission 
determine that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for 
Ginna, including cumulative impacts, are not so great that preserving 
the option of license renewal for energy-planning decisionmakers would 
be unreasonable.
    The final Supplement 14 to the GEIS is available for public 
inspection in the NRC Public Document Room (PDR) located at One White 
Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland, 
or from the Publicly Available Records (PARS) component of NRC's 
Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS). ADAMS is 
accessible from the NRC Web site at http://www.nrc.gov (the Public 
Electronic Reading Room). Persons who do not have access to ADAMS, or 
who encounter problems in accessing the documents located in ADAMS, 
should contact the PDR reference staff at 1-800-397-4209, 301-415-4737, 
or by e-mail to pdr@nrc.gov. The final supplement to the GEIS is also 
available for public inspection at the Ontario Public Library, located 
at 1850 Ridge Road, Ontario, New York, and the Rochester Public 
Library, located at 115 South Avenue, Rochester, New York.
