I. Introduction

Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.106, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is providing notice that it has terminated license SUC-1581 for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) (Licensee), and has released its Bay City, Michigan, Tobico Marsh State Game Area site for unrestricted use. The Licensee's request for an amendment to authorize decommissioning of its Bay City, Michigan site was previously noticed in the Federal Register on July 2, 2004 (69 FR 41855) with an opportunity to request a hearing.

MDNR provided a final radiological status survey and performed an on-site and off-site dose analysis to demonstrate the site meets the license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20. In addition, NRC staff conducted independent measurements of soils and surfaces at the site.

The NRC staff has evaluated MDNR's request, has reviewed the results of the final radiological survey, and has determined that the site meets the unrestricted release dose criteria in 10 CFR 20.1402. The staff prepared a Safety Evaluation Report (SER) to support its termination of the MDNR license.
