The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to Millipore Corporation's Materials License No. 29-30108-01, to authorize release of its facility in Lincoln Park, New Jersey for unrestricted use. NRC has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this action in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR Part 51. Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate. The amendment will be issued following the publication of this Notice.
II. EA Summary
The purpose of the proposed action is to authorize the release of the licensee's Lincoln Park, New Jersey facility for unrestricted use. Millipore Corporation (previously known as CPG, Inc.) was authorized by NRC from 1994, to use radioactive materials for research and development purposes at the site. On January 27, 2004, Millipore Corporation requested that NRC release the facility for unrestricted use. Millipore Corporation has conducted surveys of the facility and determined that the facility meets the license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20. The NRC staff has prepared an EA in support of the proposed license amendment.
III. Finding of No Significant Impact
The staff has prepared the EA (summarized above) in support of the proposed license amendment to terminate the license and release the facility for unrestricted use. The NRC staff has evaluated Millipore Corporation's request and the results of the surveys and has concluded that the completed action complies with the criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20. The staff has found that the environmental impacts from the proposed action are bounded by the impacts evaluated by the “Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRC-Licensed Facilities” (NUREG-1496). On the basis of the EA, the NRC has concluded that the environmental impacts from the proposed action are expected to be insignificant and has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action.
IV. Further Information
The EA and the documents related to this proposed action, including the application for the license amendment and supporting documentation, are available for inspection at NRC's Public Electronic Reading Room at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html (ADAMS Accession Nos.
