II. Introduction and Solicitation of Comments

The NRC has received, by letter dated September 18, 2013, an application to amend Source Materials License No. SUA-1475 (the UNC license) for the UNC Church Rock Mill site located in New Mexico (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML13277A287, ML13266A361). Specifically, UNC, a subsidiary of General Electric (GE), requested to extend the projected dates for (1) the completion of groundwater corrective actions, and (2) the emplacement of the final radon barrier and erosion protection for the UNC Church Rock Mill Site. On November 7, 2013, the NRC issued License Amendment No. 48, subsequently corrected by License Amendment No. 49 (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML13277A287 and ML14043A475), granting the licensee's request regarding its groundwater corrective actions. However, prior to making a final determination on the UNC's second request to extend the date for emplacing the final radon barrier and the erosion protection, the NRC is providing an opportunity for public participation required under Criterion 6A(2) of Appendix A to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 40, through the provision of this opportunity to provide comments. Specific comments are requested on the requested changes to License Conditions 35.A(3) and 35.B(1), which would extend the date for emplacement of the final radon barrier and the erosion protection from December 31, 2014 to December 31, 2019. Comments should be provided within 30 days of the publication date of this notice.
