PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD FOR HADDAM NECK LICENSE TERMINATION PLAN SCHEDULED TO CLOSE ON DECEMBER 29

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is asking for public comments on the License Termination Plan for the decommissioning Haddam Neck nuclear power plant through December 29.

Connecticut Yankee Atomic Power Company permanently ceased operations of the Haddam, Conn., plant on December 5, 1996. The company submitted its License Termination Plan for the facility to the NRC on July 7. On August 23, the NRC published a notice in the Federal Register announcing receipt of the plan and the acceptance of public comments regarding the document. In addition, NRC staff conducted a public meeting on the plan on October 17 in Higganum, Conn. The NRC staff has now begun a technical review of the plan.

To be certain of consideration, comments must be received by December 29. Comments received after the due date will be considered if it is practical to do so.

In accordance with NRC regulations, all companies licensed to operate a nuclear power reactor must submit an application to terminate the license. If found acceptable by the NRC staff, the plan is approved by license amendment, subject to such conditions and limitations as the NRC staff deems appropriate and necessary.

An electronic version of the plan can be viewed on the NRC's web page at

Written comments may be submitted to: Chief, Rules and Directives Branch, Division of Administrative Services, Mail Stop T-6 D59, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, D.C. 20555-0001.
