SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing an exemption to certain inventory-related requirements of 10 CFR 74.19(b) and 10 CFR 74.19(c) for Possession Only License No. DPR-45, issued to Dairyland Power Cooperative (DPC) (the licensee) for the La Crosse Boiling Water Reactor in Genoa, Wisconsin. NRC has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this amendment in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR Part 51. Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate. The exemption will be issued following the publication of this Notice.

II. EA Summary

The proposed action is to grant an exemption to DPC from certain inventory-related requirements of 10 CFR 74.19(b) and 10 CFR 74.19(c), until the time the spent fuel is moved from the spent fuel pool to dry cask storage.

The staff has prepared the EA in support of the proposed exemption. The proposed action is an administrative action and will not result in any significant environmental impacts. The proposed action will not result in the release of any chemical or radiological constituents to the environment and will not affect any environmental resources. The proposed action will not cause any adverse impacts to local land use, biotic resources, or cultural or historic resources.

III. Finding of No Significant Impact

Pursuant to 10 CFR Part 51, the NRC staff has considered the environmental consequences of granting DPC an exemption from certain inventory-related requirements of 10 CFR 74.19(b) and 10 CFR 74.19(c). On the basis of this assessment, the Commission has concluded that there are no significant environmental impacts from the proposed action, and the Commission is making a finding of no significant impact. Accordingly, preparation of an environmental impact statement is not warranted.
