SUBJECT: SOUTH TEXAS PROJECT, UNITS 1 AND 2 - DRAFT SAFETY EVALUATION ON EXEMPTION REQUESTS FROM SPECIAL TREATMENT REQUIREMENTS OF 10 CFR PARTS 21, 50, AND 100

During the 478th meeting of the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards, December 6-9, 2000, the ACRS discussed the staff's draft safety evaluation on the Exemption Requests from Special Treatment Requirements for the South Texas Project, Units 1 and 2. The draft safety evaluation is not complete. Because of the significance of the open items, an ACRS Subcommittee plans to discuss this issue during a meeting prior to completion of the staff's draft safety evaluation.
