The purpose of the draft environmental impact state- ment (EIS) on decommissioning was to assist the NRC in developing new policies and promulgating new regulations for decommission- ing. The EIS only addressed those activities carried out to decommis- sion a facility at the end of its useful life.

This document is a supplement to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) document Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities issued in (NUREG, referred to here as the Generic Environmental Impact Statement [GEIS]).

This Supplement was prepared because of technological advances in decommissioning operations, experience gained by licensees, and changes made to NRC regulations. The action being considered in this Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) is an amendment to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) regulations in 10 CFR Part 20 to include radiological criteria for decommissioning of lands and structures at nuclear facilities.

[U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research.;]. This appendix describes the process that the staff used to determine the environmental impacts from decommissioning nuclear power facilities. Figure E-1 is a flowchart showing the evaluation process.

The staff first created an initial list of environmental issues and decommissioning activities that this Supplement should address (Table E-1). Decommissioning Nuclear decommissioning is a term used to describe the process of removing a nuclear facility or site safely from service and reducing residual radioactivity to a level that permits (i) release of the property for unrestricted use and termination of the license or (ii) release of the property under restricted conditions and termination of the license.

This publication presents the main elements of policies and strategies for decommissioning activities of nuclear and radiological facilities. It is intended to help in facilitating proper and systematic planning, and safe, timely and cost effective implementation of all decommissioning activities.

Revisions to Decommissioning Generic Environmental Impact Statement. In connection with the Decommissioning Rulemaking above, the NRC staff is planning to revise the Decommissioning Generic Environmental Impact Statement or Decommissioning GEIS which was last updated in The Decommissioning GEIS is used to evaluate environmental impacts during the decommissioning of nuclear.

Supplement 1 to NUREG, “Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement [GEIS] on Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities,” issued November (Ref. 9), evaluates the environmental impact of three methods for decommissioning.

The supplemental information to the decommissioning rule (53 FR ) also discusses the three. Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has published Final Supplement 1 to NUREG, “Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) on Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities,” regarding the decommissioning of nuclear power reactors.

statements that the licensee had published, and any other environmental assessment that had been conducted during the operation. So we were weren't necessarily looking at the impact; we were looking at the way the impacts might change from during operation, not necessarily from the way the plant was prior to operation.

So we were comparing. This publication establishes requirements for the safe decommissioning of a broad range of facilities: nuclear power plants, research reactors, nuclear fuel cycle facilities, facilities for processing naturally occurring radioactive material, former military sites, and relevant medical, industrial and research facilities.

BACKGROUND. The Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on Ura- nium Milling (NUREG) was published by the NRC's Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards in September This EIS assessed the potential impacts of the American uranium milling indus- try, including operations, management of railings, and mill by: 1.

Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has published draft Supplement 1 to NUREG, “Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities [GEIS],” dealing with decommissioning of nuclear. We concentrate here on only four related areas, namely uranium mining, reprocessing and the alleged linkage between civil nuclear fuel use and its deployment or diversion into military weapons, the transportation of irradiated fuel, and the decommis-sioning of spent reactors.

Figure illustrates how these topics connect to the nuclear fuel Author: Timothy O’Riordan, Ray Kemp, Michael Purdue. Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) intends to prepare a draft supplement to the Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) on Decommissioning of Nuclear Start Printed Page Facilities (NUREG, August ) and to hold public scoping meetings for the purpose of soliciting comments.

Although NUREG covered. The NRC has prepared a generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) for the decommissioning of all NRC-licensed nuclear facilities to satisfy NEPA requirements. Southern California Edison, the licensee for the San Onofre nuclear plant, is required by the NRC to review the proposed decommissioning activities and assess whether the potential.
