On December 11, 2008, the U.S. Department of Transportation—Maritime Administration (MARAD) submitted its PSDAR for the NS Savannah. The PSDAR provides an overview of MARAD's proposed decommissioning activities, schedule, and costs for the NS Savannah. The NS Savannah was brought to power in 1961 and removed from service in 1970. Final reactor shutdown occurred in November 1970 and defueling was completed in fall 1971. The NS Savannah is currently located at the Canton Marine Terminal in Baltimore, Maryland. The PSDAR, dated December 11, 2008, was placed in NRC's Agency-wide Document Access and Management System (ADAMS) with Accession No. ML083500100.
