Start Preamble

On March 15, 2004, as supplemented by letters on September 2, 2004, and May 16, 2005, Maine Yankee Atomic Power Company (Maine Yankee) submitted a request to amend its license to release the remaining land under License No. DPR-36 with the exception of the land where the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) is located, and a 3.17 acre parcel of land adjacent to the ISFSI. Notification of the amendment request was published in the Federal Registe r on May 5, 2004 (Vol. 69, No. 101, Page 69769).

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff reviewed the Final Status Survey Report (FSSR) and concludes that: (i) Dismantlement and decontamination activities were performed in accordance with the approved License Termination Plan (LTP), and (ii) Maine Yankee's FSSR Supplements 1-10A demonstrate that the land to be released from Facility Operating License No. DPR-36, meets the radiological criteria for unrestricted use, as defined by 10 CFR 20.1402, by meeting site release criteria of 10 millirem (Total Effective Dose Equivalent (TEDE) per year over background (all pathways) and 4 millirem (as distinguishable from background) TEDE per year for groundwater sources of drinking water in accordance with the approved LTP. Therefore, NRC is releasing all land from the jurisdiction of license DPR-36 except the land where the ISFSI is located, and a 3.17 acre parcel of land adjacent to the ISFSI.
