On March 16, 2017, the petitioner requested that the NRC take action with regard to the U.S. Army Installation Command (ADAMS Accession No. ML17110A308). The petitioner requested that the NRC reconsider its approval of License SUC-1593 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16343A161) for possession of depleted uranium at various military installations in the United States.

As the basis for this request, the petitioner identified concerns about lack of air sampling, inappropriateness of the location and number of sediment samples, and insufficient geologic sampling procedures for sediment collection for the licensed depleted uranium that is located in radiation controlled areas on the United States Army's Pohakuloa Training Area, one of the facilities licensed under License SUC-1593.

The request is being treated pursuant to section 2.206 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) of the Commission's regulations. The request has been referred to the Director of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards. As provided by 10 CFR 2.206, appropriate action will be taken on this petition within a reasonable time.
