Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, Commission) has published a draft plant-specific supplement to the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants (GEIS), NUREG-1437, regarding the renewal of operating licenses DPR-63 and NPF-69 for an additional 20 years of operation for the Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station, Units 1 and 2 (Nine Mile Point). Nine Mile Point is located in northern New York on the shore of Lake Ontario, approximately 5 miles northeast of Oswego, New York, 36 miles north-northeast of Syracuse, New York, and 65 miles east of Rochester, New York. Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative energy sources.

The draft Supplement 24 to the GEIS is publicly available at the NRC Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, 20852, or from the NRC's Agencywide Documents Start Printed Page 58490Access and Management System (ADAMS). The ADAMS Public Electronic Reading Room is accessible at http://www.nrc.gov/​reading-rm/​adams/​web-based.html. The accession number for the draft Supplement 24 to the GEIS is ML052720075. Persons who do not have access to ADAMS, or who encounter problems in accessing the documents located in ADAMS, should contact the NRC's Public Document Room Reference staff by telephone at 1-800-397-4209, or 301-415-4737, or by e-mail at pdr@nrc.gov. In addition, the Penfield Library, located at State University of New York, Oswego, New York 13126, has agreed to make the draft supplement to the GEIS available for public inspection.

Any interested party may submit comments on the draft supplement to the GEIS for consideration by the NRC staff. To be certain of consideration, comments on the draft supplement to the GEIS and the proposed action must be received by December 22, 2005. Comments received after the due date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC staff is able to assure consideration only for comments received on or before this date. Written comments on the draft supplement to the GEIS should be sent to: Chief, Rules and Directives Branch, Division of Administrative Services, Office of Administration, Mailstop T-6D59, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001.

Electronic comments may be submitted to the NRC by e-mail at NineMilePointEIS@nrc.gov. All comments received by the Commission, including those made by Federal, State, local agencies, Native American Tribes, or other interested persons, will be made available electronically at the Commission's PDR in Rockville, Maryland, and through ADAMS.

The NRC staff will hold a public meeting to present an overview of the draft plant-specific supplement to the GEIS and to accept public comments on the document. The public meeting will be held on November 17, 2005, at the Town of Scriba Conference Room, 42 Creamery Road, Oswego, New York 13126. There will be two sessions to accommodate interested parties.

Additionally, the NRC staff will host informal discussions one hour prior to the start of each session at the same location. No comments on the draft supplement to the GEIS will be accepted during the informal discussions. To be considered, comments must be provided either at the transcribed public meeting or in writing. Persons may pre-register to attend or present oral comments at the meeting by contacting Ms. Leslie C. Fields, the NRC Environmental Project Manager at 1-800-368-5642, extension 1186, or by e-mail at NineMilePointEIS@nrc.gov no later than November 8, 2005. Members of the public may also register to provide oral comments within 15 minutes of the start of each session.

If special equipment or accommodations are needed to attend or present information at the public meeting, the need should be brought to Ms. Fields's attention no later than November 8, 2005, to provide the NRC staff adequate notice to determine whether the request can be accommodated.
