The NRC is issuing for public comment draft plant-specific Supplement 5, Second Renewal, to the GEIS for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants, NUREG-1437, regarding the subsequent renewal of Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-31 and DPR-41 for an additional 20 years of operation for Turkey Point Unit Nos. 3 and 4. Draft plant-specific Supplement 5, Second Renewal, to the GEIS includes the preliminary analysis that evaluates the environmental impacts of the proposed action and alternatives to the proposed action. The NRC's preliminary recommendation is that the adverse environmental impacts of subsequent license renewal for Turkey Point are not so great that preserving the option of subsequent license renewal for energy-planning decisionmakers would be unreasonable.
III. Public Meetings
The NRC staff will hold two public meetings prior to the close of the public comment period to present an overview of the draft plant-specific supplement to the GEIS and to accept public comment on the document. The meetings will be held on May 1, 2019, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the City of Homestead City Hall, 100 Civic Court, Homestead, FL 33030. There will be an open house one hour before each meeting for members of the public to meet with NRC staff members and sign in to speak. The meetings will be transcribed and will include: (1) A presentation of the contents of the draft plant-specific supplement to the GEIS and (2) the opportunity for interested government agencies, organizations, and individuals to provide comments on the draft plant-specific supplement to the GEIS. To be considered in the final supplement to the GEIS, comments must be provided either at the transcribed public meetings or submitted in writing by the comment deadline identified above. Persons may pre-register to attend or present oral comments at the meetings by contacting Mr. William Burton, the NRC Project Manager, at 301-415-6332, or by email at William.Burton@nrc.gov no later than Tuesday, April 23, 2019. Members of the public may also register to provide oral comments within 15 minutes before the start of the meetings. Individual oral comments may be limited by the time available, depending on the number of persons who register. If special equipment or accommodations are needed to attend or present information at the public meeting, the need should be brought to Mr. Burton's attention no later than Tuesday, April 23, 2019, to provide the NRC staff adequate notice to determine whether the request can be accommodated.
