This supplement documents the NRC staff's review of the environmental issues at Sequoyah Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2 regarding the Tennessee Valley Authority application for license renewal of that facility. The supplement was prepared in accordance with 10 CFR 51.71. This supplemental environmental impact statement includes the NRC staff's analysis that considers and weighs the environmental effects of the proposed action (license renewal) and the environmental impacts of alternatives to the proposed action. It also includes the NRC staff's preliminary recommendation regarding the proposed action.
