By letter dated May 28, 2002, Virginia Electric and Power Company (Dominion) submitted an application to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) in accordance with 10 CFR part 72 requesting an amendment of the North Anna independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) license (SNM-2507) for the ISFSI located in Louisa County, Virginia. Dominion is seeking Commission approval to amend its license to change the ISFSI's technical specifications regarding the type of spent fuel authorized for storage. Dominion has requested to change the technical specifications to allow the storage of spent nuclear fuel with higher initial enrichment and burnup than currently specified.
This application was docketed under 10 CFR part 72; the ISFSI Docket No. is 72-16 and will remain the same for this action. The amendment of an ISFSI license is subject to the Commission's approval.
The Commission may issue either a notice of hearing or a notice of proposed action and opportunity for hearing in accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(1) or, if a determination is made that the amendment does not present a genuine issue as to whether public health and safety will be significantly affected, take immediate action on the amendment in accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2) and provide notice of the action taken and an opportunity for interested persons to request a hearing on whether the action should be rescinded or modified.
