Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) has published a draft plant-specific supplement to the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants (GEIS), NUREG-1437, regarding the renewal of operating licenses DPR-70, DPR-75, and NPF-57, for an additional 20 years of operation for Salem Nuclear Generating Station (Salem), Units 1 and 2, and Hope Creek Generating Station (HCGS). Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative energy sources.
Any interested party may submit comments on the draft supplement to the GEIS for consideration by the NRC staff. To be considered, comments on the draft supplement to the GEIS and the proposed action must be received by December 17, 2010; the NRC staff is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date.
You may submit comments by any one of the following methods. Please include Docket ID NRC-2009-0390 or NRC-2009-0391 in the subject line of your comments. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be posted on the NRC Web site and on the Federal rulemaking Web site Regulations.gov. Because your comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against including any information in your submission that you do not want to be publicly disclosed.
The NRC requests that any party soliciting or aggregating comments received from other persons for submission to the NRC inform those persons that the NRC will not edit their comments to remove any identifying or contact information, and therefore, they should not include any information in their comments that they do not want publicly disclosed.
