Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

ACTION:

Notice; correction.

SUMMARY:

TVA published a record of decision (ROD) for the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for a Single Nuclear Unit at the Bellefonte Plant Site (final SEIS) on September 9, 2010. The location of the proposed nuclear plant site was stated incorrectly in the heading of the ROD.

TVA prepared the final SEIS to update the extensive environmental information and analyses that exist respecting the Bellefonte site and the construction and operation of a nuclear power plant on that site. The ROD documents the August 20, 2010, TVA Board of Directors' (TVA Board) approval to spend $248 million for engineering, design, and licensing activities needed to maintain Unit 1 as a viable alternative to meet the projected need for base load generation on the TVA system in 2018-2020. Bellefonte Unit 1 is a partially completed 1,260-megawatt Babcock and Wilcox-designed pressurized light water reactor. It is anticipated that the TVA Board will be asked to approve completion and operation of Unit 1 next year, depending on the results of a new TVA Integrated Resource Plan, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2011.
