Intent to conduct scoping process and prepare environmental impact statement; public scoping meeting and request for comment; correction.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is correcting a notice that was published in the Federal Register on October 23, 2020, informing the public of the NRC's intention to conduct environmental scoping and prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) related to Virginia Electric and Power Company's (Dominion) subsequent license renewal application for North Anna Power Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2 (North Anna), and to provide the public an opportunity to participate in the environmental scoping process. This action is necessary to correct the public scoping webinar participant's passcode.
The NRC will hold a public scoping meeting as an online webinar on November 4, 2020, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST). Submit comments on the scope of the EIS by November 23, 2020. Comments received after November 23, 2020, will be considered if it is practical to do so, but assurance of consideration cannot be given to comments received after this date.
You may submit comments by any of the following methods (unless this document describes a different method for submitting comments on a specific subject); however, the NRC encourages electronic comment submission through the Federal Rulemaking website:

The NRC is announcing that it will hold a public scoping meeting as an online webinar, for the North Anna subsequent license renewal supplement to the NRC's NUREG-1437, “Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants” (GEIS). The webinar will offer a telephone line for members of the public to provide comments. A court reporter will record and transcribe all comments received during the webinar. To be considered, comments must be provided either at the transcribed public meeting or in writing, as discussed in the ADDRESSES section of this document.
