The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has denied a request by Nuclear Management Company, LLC (the licensee) for an amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-49 issued to the licensee for operation of the Duane Arnold Energy Center, located in Linn County, Iowa.
Notice of Consideration of Issuance of this amendment was published in the Federal Register on April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19571).
The purpose of the licensee's amendment request was to revise the Technical Specifications (TS) to reflect adoption of Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) traveler numbers 264, 273, 284, and 299.
The NRC staff has concluded that the portion of the licensee's request to adopt TSTF-264 and revise TS 126.96.36.199 cannot be granted. The licensee was notified of the Commission's denial of the proposed change by a letter dated June 14, 2005.
By 30 days from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the licensee may demand a hearing with respect to the denial described above. Any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding may file a written petition for leave to intervene pursuant to the requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations Section 2.309.
A request for hearing or petition for leave to intervene must be filed with the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001 Attention: Rulemakings and Adjudications Staff, or may be delivered to the Commission's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland, by the above date. Because of continuing disruptions in delivery to mail to U.S. Government offices, it is requested that petitions for leave to intervene and requests for hearing be transmitted to the Secretary of the Commission either by means of facsimile transmission to 301-415-1101 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. A copy of any petitions should also be sent to the Office of the General Counsel, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001, and because of continuing disruptions in delivery of mail to the U.S. Government offices, it is requested that copies be transmitted either by means of facsimile transmission to 301-415-3725 or by e-mail to OGCMailCenter@nrc.gov. A copy of any petitions should also be sent to Bradley D. Jackson, Esq., Foley and Lardner, P.O. Box 1497, Madison, WI 53701-1497, attorney for the licensee.
