                [NRC-2022-0065]
                Monthly Notice; Applications and Amendments to Facility Operating
                Licenses and Combined Licenses Involving No Significant Hazards
                Considerations
                AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
                ACTION: Monthly notice.
                -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 189.a.(2) of the Atomic Energy Act of
                1954, as amended (the Act), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission
                (NRC) is publishing this regular monthly notice. The Act requires the
                Commission to publish notice of any amendments issued, or proposed to
                be issued, and grants the Commission the authority to issue and make
                immediately effective any amendment to an operating license or combined
                license, as applicable, upon a determination by the Commission that
                such amendment involves no significant hazards consideration (NSHC),
                notwithstanding the pendency before the Commission of a request for a
                hearing from any person. This monthly notice includes all amendments
                issued, or proposed to be issued, from February 4, 2022, to March 3,

                include identifying or contact information that they do not want to be
                publicly disclosed in their comment submission. Your request should
                state that the NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to
                remove such information before making the comment submissions available
                to the public or entering the comment into ADAMS.
                II. Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendments to Facility
                Operating Licenses and Combined Licenses and Proposed No Significant
                Hazards Consideration Determination
                 For the facility-specific amendment requests shown in this notice,
                the Commission finds that the licensees' analyses provided, consistent
                with section 50.91 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10
                CFR), are sufficient to support the proposed determinations that these
                amendment requests involve NSHC. Under the Commission's regulations in
                10 CFR 50.92, operation of the facilities in accordance with the
                proposed amendments would not (1) involve a significant increase in the
                probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated; or (2)
                create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any
                accident previously evaluated; or (3) involve a significant reduction
                in a margin of safety.
                 The Commission is seeking public comments on these proposed
                determinations. Any comments received within 30 days after the date of
                publication of this notice will be considered in making any final
                determinations.
                 Normally, the Commission will not issue the amendments until the
                expiration of 60 days after the date of publication of this notice. The
                Commission may issue any of these license amendments before expiration
                of the 60-day period provided that its final determination is that the
                amendment involves NSHC. In addition, the Commission may issue any of
                these amendments prior to the expiration of the 30-day comment period
                if circumstances change during the 30-day comment period such that
                failure to act in a timely way would result, for example in derating or
                shutdown of the facility. If the Commission takes action on any of
                these amendments prior to the expiration of either the comment period
                or the notice period, it will publish in the Federal Register a notice
                of issuance. If the Commission makes a final NSHC determination for any
                of these amendments, any hearing will take place after issuance. The
                Commission expects that the need to take action on any amendment before
                60 days have elapsed will occur very infrequently.
                A. Opportunity To Request a Hearing and Petition for Leave To Intervene
                 Within 60 days after the date of publication of this notice, any
                persons (petitioner) whose interest may be affected by any of these
                actions may file a request for a hearing and petition for leave to
                intervene (petition) with respect to that action. Petitions shall be
                filed in accordance with the Commission's ``Agency Rules of Practice
                and Procedure'' in 10 CFR part 2. Interested persons should consult a
                current copy of 10 CFR 2.309. The NRC's regulations are accessible
                electronically from the NRC Library on the NRC's website at https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/cfr/. If a petition is filed,
                the Commission or a presiding officer will rule on the petition and, if
                appropriate, a notice of a hearing will be issued.
                 As required by 10 CFR 2.309(d) the petition should specifically
                explain the reasons why intervention should be permitted with
                particular reference to the following general requirements for
                standing: (1) The name, address, and telephone number of the
                petitioner; (2) the nature of the petitioner's right to be made a party
                to the proceeding; (3) the nature and extent of the petitioner's
                property, financial, or other interest in the proceeding; and (4) the
                possible effect of any decision or order which may be entered in the
                proceeding on the petitioner's interest.
                 In accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(f), the petition must also set
                forth the specific contentions that the petitioner seeks to have
                litigated in the proceeding. Each contention must consist of a specific
                statement of the issue of law or fact to be raised or controverted. In
                addition, the petitioner must provide a brief explanation of the bases
                for the contention and a concise statement of the alleged facts or
                expert opinion that support the contention and on which the petitioner
                intends to rely in proving the contention at the hearing. The
                petitioner must also provide references to the specific sources and
                documents on which the petitioner intends to rely to support its
                position on the issue. The petition must include sufficient information
                to show that a genuine dispute exists with the applicant or licensee on
                a material issue of law or fact. Contentions must be limited to matters
                within the scope of the proceeding. The contention must be one that, if
                proven, would entitle the petitioner to relief. A petitioner who fails
                to satisfy the requirements at 10 CFR 2.309(f) with respect to at least
                one contention will not be permitted to participate as a party.
                 Those permitted to intervene become parties to the proceeding,
                subject to any limitations in the order granting leave to intervene.
                Parties have the opportunity to participate fully in the conduct of the
                hearing with respect to resolution of that party's admitted
                contentions, including the opportunity to present evidence, consistent
                with the NRC's regulations, policies, and procedures.
                 Petitions must be filed no later than 60 days from the date of
                publication of this notice. Petitions and motions for leave to file new
                or amended contentions that are filed after the deadline will not be
                entertained absent a determination by the presiding officer that the
                filing demonstrates good cause by satisfying the three factors in 10
                CFR 2.309(c)(1)(i) through (iii). The petition must be filed in
                accordance with the filing instructions in the ``Electronic Submissions
                (E-Filing)'' section of this document.
                 If a hearing is requested, and the Commission has not made a final
                determination on the issue of NSHC, the Commission will make a final
                determination on the issue of NSHC. The final determination will serve
                to establish when the hearing is held. If the final determination is
                that the amendment request involves NSHC, the Commission may issue the
                amendment and make it immediately effective, notwithstanding the
                request for a hearing. Any hearing would take place after issuance of
                the amendment. If the final determination is that the amendment request
                involves a significant hazards consideration, then any hearing held
                would take place before the issuance of the amendment unless the
                Commission finds an imminent danger to the health or safety of the
                public, in which case it will issue an appropriate order or rule under
                10 CFR part 2.
                 A State, local governmental body, Federally recognized Indian
                Tribe, or agency thereof, may submit a petition to the Commission to
                participate as a party under 10 CFR 2.309(h)(1). The petition should
                state the nature and extent of the petitioner's interest in the
                proceeding. The petition should be submitted to the Commission no later
                than 60 days from the date of publication of this notice. The petition
                must be filed in accordance with the filing instructions in the
                [[Page 16251]]
                ``Electronic Submissions (E-Filing)'' section of this document, and
                should meet the requirements for petitions set forth in this section,
                except that under 10 CFR 2.309(h)(2) a State, local governmental body,
                or Federally recognized Indian Tribe, or agency thereof does not need
                to address the standing requirements in 10 CFR 2.309(d) if the facility
                is located within its boundaries. Alternatively, a State, local
                governmental body, Federally recognized Indian Tribe, or agency thereof
                may participate as a non-party under 10 CFR 2.315(c).
                 If a petition is submitted, any person who is not a party to the
                proceeding and is not affiliated with or represented by a party may, at
                the discretion of the presiding officer, be permitted to make a limited
                appearance pursuant to the provisions of 10 CFR 2.315(a). A person
                making a limited appearance may make an oral or written statement of
                his or her position on the issues but may not otherwise participate in
                the proceeding. A limited appearance may be made at any session of the
                hearing or at any prehearing conference, subject to the limits and
                conditions as may be imposed by the presiding officer. Details
                regarding the opportunity to make a limited appearance will be provided
                by the presiding officer if such sessions are scheduled.
                B. Electronic Submissions (E-Filing)
                 All documents filed in NRC adjudicatory proceedings including
                documents filed by an interested State, local governmental body,
                Federally recognized Indian Tribe, or designated agency thereof that
                requests to participate under 10 CFR 2.315(c), must be filed in
                accordance with 10 CFR 2.302. The E-Filing process requires
                participants to submit and serve all adjudicatory documents over the
                internet, or in some cases, to mail copies on electronic storage media,
                unless an exemption permitting an alternative filing method, as
                discussed in this notice, is granted. Detailed guidance on electronic
                submissions is located in the Guidance for Electronic Submissions to
                the NRC (ADAMS Accession No. ML13031A056) and on the NRC website at
                https://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals.html.
                 To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least 10
                days prior to the filing deadline, the participant should contact the
                Office of the Secretary by email at [email protected], or by
                telephone at 301-415-1677, to (1) request a digital identification (ID)
                certificate, which allows the participant (or its counsel or
                representative) to digitally sign submissions and access the E-Filing
                system for any proceeding in which it is participating; and (2) advise
                the Secretary that the participant will be submitting a petition or
                other adjudicatory document (even in instances in which the
                participant, or its counsel or representative, already holds an NRC-
                issued digital ID certificate). Based upon this information, the
                Secretary will establish an electronic docket for the proceeding if the
                Secretary has not already established an electronic docket.
                 Information about applying for a digital ID certificate is
                available on the NRC's public website at https://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals/getting-started.html. After a digital ID certificate is
                obtained and a docket created, the participant must submit adjudicatory
                documents in Portable Document Format. Guidance on submissions is
                available on the NRC's public website at https://www.nrc.gov/site-help/electronic-sub-ref-mat.html. A filing is considered complete at the
                time the document is submitted through the NRC's E-Filing system. To be
                timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the E-Filing system
                no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of
                a transmission, the E-Filing system timestamps the document and sends
                the submitter an email confirming receipt of the document. The E-Filing
                system also distributes an email that provides access to the document
                to the NRC's Office of the General Counsel and any others who have
                advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in
                the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the document on those
                participants separately. Therefore, applicants and other participants
                (or their counsel or representative) must apply for and receive a
                digital ID certificate before adjudicatory documents are filed to
                obtain access to the documents via the E-Filing system.
                 A person filing electronically using the NRC's adjudicatory E-
                Filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC's Electronic

                 Participants who believe that they have good cause for not
                submitting documents electronically must file an exemption request, in
                accordance with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing
                stating why there is good cause for not filing electronically and
                requesting authorization to continue to submit documents in paper
                format. Such filings must be submitted in accordance with 10 CFR
                2.302(b)-(d). Participants filing adjudicatory documents in this manner
                are responsible for serving their documents on all other participants.
                Participants granted an exemption under 10 CFR 2.302(g)(2) must still
                meet the electronic formatting requirement in 10 CFR 2.302(g)(1),
                unless the participant also seeks and is granted an exemption from 10
                CFR 2.302(g)(1).
                 Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in the

                III. Notice of Issuance of Amendments to Facility Operating Licenses
                and Combined Licenses
                 During the period since publication of the last monthly notice, the
                Commission has issued the following amendments. The Commission has
                determined for each of these amendments that the application complies
                with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954,
                as amended (the Act), and the Commission's rules and regulations. The
                Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the
                Commission's rules and regulations in 10 CFR chapter I, which are set
                forth in the license amendment.
                 A notice of consideration of issuance of amendment to facility
                operating license or combined license, as applicable, proposed NSHC
                determination, and opportunity for a hearing in connection with these
                actions, was published in the Federal Register as indicated in the
                safety evaluation for each amendment.
                 Unless otherwise indicated, the Commission has determined that
                these amendments satisfy the criteria for categorical exclusion in
                accordance with 10 CFR 51.22. Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b),
                no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment need be
                prepared for these amendments. If the Commission has prepared an
                environmental assessment under the special circumstances provision in
                10 CFR 51.22(b) and has made a determination based on that assessment,
                it is so indicated in the safety evaluation for the amendment.
                 For further details with respect to each action, see the amendment
                and associated documents such as the Commission's letter and safety
                evaluation, which may be obtained using the ADAMS accession numbers
                indicated in the following table. The safety evaluation will provide
                the ADAMS accession numbers for the application for amendment and the
                Federal Register citation for any environmental assessment. All of
                these items can be accessed as described in the ``Obtaining Information
                and Submitting Comments'' section of this document.

                ------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Docket No(s)...................... 50-423.
                Amendment Date.................... February 16, 2022.
                ADAMS Accession No................ ML22007A151.
                Amendment No(s)................... 282.
                Brief Description of Amendment(s). The amendment modified the technical
                 specifications (TS) by revising TS
                 3.1.3.2 to provide an alternative
                 monitoring option for the condition
                 where a maximum of one digital rod
                 position indicator per bank is
                 inoperable. Specifically, as an
                 alternative to determining the
                 position of the non-indicating
                 rod(s) indirectly by the movable
                 incore detectors at a frequency of
                 once per 8 hours, the change allows
                 rod position verification to be
                 performed based on the occurrence
                 of rod movement or power level
                 change. This revision is consistent
                 with Technical Specification Task
                 Force Traveler 547, Revision 1, and
                 provides alternate TS Actions to
                 allow the position of the rod to be
                 monitored by a means other than
                 movable incore detectors. The
                 amendment also revised TS 3.1.3.5
                 to replace shutdown ``rods'' with
                 shutdown ``banks'' and makes
                 conforming changes to TS 3.1.3.5
                 Actions and Surveillance
                 Requirements, consistent with
                 wording in the standard TSs for
                 Westinghouse Plants as provided in
                 NUREG-1431, Revision 4. Finally,
                 the amendment included
                 administrative changes to revise
                 the title of TS 3.1.3.6, to reflect
                 that the requirements apply to
                 control ``banks'' and modifies TS
                 6.9.1.6.a and TS 6.9.1.6.b to cite
                 the revised titles of TS 3.1.3.5
                 and TS 3.1.3.6.
                Public Comments Received as to No.
                 Proposed NSHC (Yes/No).

                 with containment spray nozzle
                 testing specified by Surveillance
                 Requirement 4.6.2.1.d.
                 Specifically, the change replaced
                 the current testing frequency, as
                 specified by the Surveillance
                 Frequency Control Program, with an
                 event-based frequency by verifying
                 each spray nozzle being
                 unobstructed following activities
                 that could result in nozzle
