SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.106, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is providing notice of the issuance of License Amendment 19 to Material License No. 42-23539-01AF to Department of the Air Force, to authorize the release of four OT-10 training sites at Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque, New Mexico for unrestricted use. The Department of the Air Force's request for an amendment to authorize decommissioning of its four OT-10 training sites was previously notice in the Federal Register on June 22, 2001 (66 FR 33579) with a notice of an opportunity to request a hearing.

The Department of the Air Force provided a final radiological status survey report to demonstrate the OT-10 site meets the license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20. In addition, NRC staff conducted independent radiological measurements of soils and surfaces at the site. The NRC staff has evaluated the Department of the Air Force's request, reviewed the results of the final radiological survey, and determined that the four OT-10 training sites: TS5, TS6, TS7, and TS8, including building 28010 but excluding building 28005, meet the unrestricted use dose criteria in 10 CFR 20.1402. The Commission has concluded that the respective OT-10 training sites as specified, are suitable for release for unrestricted use.

This license amendment complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and NRC's rules and regulations set forth in 10 CFR Chapter 1. Accordingly, this license amendment was issued on December 12, 2005, and is effective immediately.

II. Further Information
