Notice of public meetings.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is announcing public meetings on the “Yucca Mountain Review Plan, NUREG-1804, Revision 2, Draft Report for Comment.” The draft “Yucca Mountain Review Plan” provides guidance to the NRC staff for evaluating a potential license application for a geologic repository. The draft “Yucca Mountain Review Plan” notice of availability and request for comments was published in the Federal Register on March 29, 2002 (67 FR 15257). A correction in the April 2, 2002 Federal Register (67 FR 16490) states the public comment period ends on June 27, 2002. Start Printed Page 30729

Three meetings have been scheduled in the State of Nevada to engage the public in a discussion of the draft “Yucca Mountain Review Plan” and ensure that the process for developing the final Revision 2 of the review plan gives full consideration to the views of the public. The meetings will include several brief presentations on the purpose, scope, structure, and content of the Yucca Mountain Review Plan. NRC is seeking public input on whether the draft “Yucca Mountain Review Plan” would effectively assess the safety of a potential geologic repository both during the operations period and after permanent closure. NRC will keep a transcript of the meetings to ensure full consideration of all comments and questions. The meetings will be facilitated by Francis X. Cameron, Special Counsel for Public Liaison, of the NRC.
