Yankee Atomic Power Company, Yankee Atomic Power Station (Rowe); 
Notice of Receipt and Availability for Comment of License Termination 

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is in receipt of and is 
making available for public inspection and comment the License 
Termination Plan (LTP) for the Yankee (Rowe) Atomic Power Station 
(Yankee-Rowe) located in Franklin County, Massachusetts.
    Yankee Atomic Electric Company (YAEC, or the licensee) informed the 
NRC by letter dated February 27, 1992, that Yankee-Rowe was permanently 
shut down and that decommissioning would commence. YAEC submitted a 
decommission plan on December 20, 1993, which included an environmental 
report. The decommissioning plan was approved by Order on February 14, 
1995, and the plant is undergoing dismantlement under 10 CFR 50.59.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 50.82(a)(9), all power reactor licensees 
must submit an application for termination of their license. The 
application for termination of license must be accompanied or preceded 
by an LTP to be submitted for NRC approval. If found acceptable by the 
NRC staff, the LTP is approved by license amendment, subject to such 
conditions and limitations as the NRC staff deems appropriate and 
necessary. YAEC submitted the proposed LTP for Yankee-Rowe by 
applications dated November 24, 2003, December 10, 2003, December 16, 
2003, January 19, 2004, January 20, 2004, February 2, 2004, February 
10, 2004, and March 4, 2004. In accordance with 10 CFR 20.1405 and 10 
CFR 50.82(a)(9)(iii), the NRC is providing notice to individuals in the 
vicinity of the site that the NRC is in receipt of the Yankee-Rowe LTP, 
and will accept comments from affected parties.
