Grant Feeds - Sun, 02/10/2019 - 23:00
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering issuance of amendments to licenses held by Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA, the licensee) for the operation of Watts Bar Nuclear Power Plant (WBN), Units 1 and 2. The proposed amendments would revise the WBN, Unit 2 Technical Specification (TS) 4.2.1, Fuel Assemblies, to add a limit on the number of tritium producing burnable absorber rods (TPBARs) that can be irradiated. This license amendment request also provides proposed changes to the WBN, Units 1 and 2 TSs related to the new criticality analyses performed for the spent fuel storage racks. The NRC is issuing an environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) associated with the proposed license amendments.

This notice announces that FHWA has received and reviewed an application from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) requesting participation in the Surface Transportation Project Delivery Program (Program). This Program allows for FHWA to assign, and States to assume, responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), and all or part of FHWA's responsibilities for environmental review, consultation, or other actions required under any Federal environmental law with respect to one or more Federal highway projects within the State. The FHWA has determined the application to be complete and developed a draft MOU with ADOT outlining how the State would implement the program with FHWA oversight. The FHWA invites the public to comment on ADOT's request, including its application and the proposed MOU, which includes the proposed assignments and assumptions of environmental review, consultation, and other activities.
