Requests for Additional Information Regarding the Combined License Application for William States Lee III Nuclear Station, Units 1 and 2

This page provides access to requests for additional information (RAIs) that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued in connection with its review of the application that Duke Energy submitted to obtain a combined license (COL) for William States Lee III Nuclear Station, Units 1 & 2. The purpose of these RAIs is to obtain all of the information that the NRC staff deems necessary to resolve any safety or environmental issues that are not adequately addressed in the application. Consequently, the applicant's responses to RAIs become supplements to the initial application. For details, see the following categories of RAIs on this page:

Safety RAIs

For all safety-related RAIs and the applicant's related responses, please refer to the eRAI Safety Report. Note that some RAIs and related responses may not be publicly available because they contain sensitive information.

In addition to the RAI responses contained in the eRAI Safety Report mentioned above, Duke Energy has endorsed RAI responses provided by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) for the Bellefonte Units 3 and 4 COL application. The endorsement of the TVA responses is related to RAIs for the portion of the William States Lee III Units 1 and 2 application that are common to the Bellefonte Units 3 and 4 application. This information is referred to as "standard content." The proposed standard content information is provided in a TVA letter dated October 24, 2008. The endorsement of the Bellefonte standard content RAIs for the William States Lee III Units 1 and 2 COL can be found in a letter dated February 5, 2009.
