Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement
DOE and NYSERDA agreed to prepare a joint draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) in which DOE and NYSERDA will use NRC’s License Termination Rule (LTR) as prescribed in the NRC Final Policy Statement for the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) for evaluating decisions on all facilities at WVDP and the Western New York Nuclear Service Center in a consistent and integrated manner in advance of the Phase 2 Decisions. NRC, EPA, NYSDEC and NYSDOH are cooperating agencies in the process. NRC will review the SEIS and adopt it if it acceptable under their NEPA responsibilities under the WVDP Act. If the SEIS does not satisfy NRC’s requirements, NRC will prepare its own NEPA document. Two Decommissioning Plans (DPs) will be prepared, one for the WVDP and one for the the State-Licensed Disposal Area and WNYNSC.
In February 2018 DOE and NYSERDA published a Notice of Intent to Prepare the SEIS.
