SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.106, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is providing notice that it is terminating license 19-10306-02 for the U.S. Department of the Army, (Army or licensee), and releasing the Building 7304 (Vault) property in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, for unrestricted use. The Army's request for an amendment to authorize decommissioning of its former radioactive waste storage facility in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, was previously noticed in the Federal Register on December 28, 2004 (69 FR 77779), with a notice of an opportunity to request a hearing.

The Army provided a final radiological status survey to demonstrate the site meets the license termination criteria in subpart E of 10 CFR part 20. In addition, NRC staff conducted independent in-process measurements of residual contamination remaining at the site.

The NRC staff has evaluated the Army's request, has reviewed the results of the final radiological survey, has performed in-process confirmatory measurements throughout the site property, and has determined that the site cleanup meets the unrestricted release dose criteria in 10 CFR 20.1402. The Commission has concluded that the site is suitable for release for unrestricted use, and has terminated the license for the Fort Belvoir, Virginia property. The staff prepared a Safety Evaluation Report (SER) to support the proposed action.
