||Original Target: 06/2020,
Revised Target: 05/2021
The original target date for an NRC decision on the subsequent license renewal application for Surry was June of 2020 (an 18-month review time). However, the applicant had not obtained a Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) consistency determination from the State prior to that date. According to 16 U.S.C. § 1456(c)(3)(A), “[n]o license or permit shall be granted by the Federal agency until the state or its designated agency has concurred with the applicant’s certification;” Therefore, the licenses could not be issued until such a concurrence was completed by the State. On April 8, 2021, Dominion submitted the State’s unconditional concurrence on Dominion’s application for the CZMA consistency certification. Upon receipt of this letter, the NRC staff continued its review of the subsequent license renewal application for Surry.
