NUREG-1437, "Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants Regarding Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2 (NUREG-1437, Supplement 34) Final Report," was published in December 2008. This supplement documents the NRC staff's review of the environmental issues at Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2 regarding the Southern Nuclear Operating Company 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 Staff's analysis that considers and weighs the environmental effects of the proposed action (license renewal), the environmental impacts of alternatives to the proposed action, and potential mitigative measures for reducing or avoiding adverse impacts. It also includes the Staff's recommendation regarding the proposed action.
The NRC staff reviewed the Vogtle license renewal application for compliance with the requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 54, "Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power Plants," and prepared this report to document its findings. The document was issued on November 20, 2008, as "Safety Evaluation Report Related to the License Renewal of Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2".
In April 2009, the report "Safety Evaluation Report Related to the License Renewal of Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2" was issued as NUREG-1920, Volume 1-part 1, Volume 1-part 2 and Volume 2.
The public is encouraged to participate in the reactor license renewal process through public meetings, and public comment periods on rules, renewal guidance, and other documents. The Reactor License Renewal Public Involvement page provides general information to help the public participate.
