Notice is hereby given that the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has published a final plant-specific Supplement 5 to the Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS), NUREG-1437, regarding the renewal of operating licenses DPR-31 and DPR-41 for the Turkey Point Plant, Units 3 and 4, for an additional 20 years of operation. The Turkey Point Plant units are operated by Florida Power and Light Company (FPL). Turkey Point Plant is located in Dade County, Florida. Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative methods of power generation.
In Section 9.3 of the report:
The staff recommends that the Commission determine that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for Turkey Point Units 3 and 4 are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy planning decisionmakers would be unreasonable. This recommendation is based on (1) the analysis and findings in the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Power Plants, NUREG-1437; (2) the ER [Environmental Report] submitted by FPL; (3) consultation with other Federal, State, and local agencies; (4) the staff's own independent review; and Start Printed Page 5013(5) the staff's consideration of public comments.
The final Supplement 5 to the GEIS is available electronically for public inspection in the NRC Public Document Room located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland, or from the Publicly Available Records (PARS) component of NRC's document management system (ADAMS). ADAMS is accessible from the NRC Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/ (the Public Electronic Reading Room).Start Further Info
