This evaluation included an assessment of cask performance for a number of severe transportation accidents, including the Caldecott Tunnel fire.

      In the context of nuclear waste management, several agencies have regulatory and operational responsibilities which may involve various proposed actions that, in turn, require the preparation of environmental impact statements EISs. In addition, as the probabilities of the events become very low, the value of insights to be gained, for use in regulatory decisions, is not apparent. The majority of traffic directly attributable to a plant is commuting plant workers. Response: The State of Utah maintains that a study similar to the one conducted for Las Vegas and Clark County must be conducted for the cumulative impacts along the Wasatch Front that would originate from the proposed Private Fuel Storage Facility to be located at Skull Valley, Utah. Under some of these options, all rail casks could traverse the Las Vegas area twice, once as rail shipments and again as HHT shipments.

      The largest doses in the incident-free conditions are now to the public. It is highly unlikely that other states and communities located along potential transportation routes to a Yucca Mountain repository are aware of the Notice or the opportunity to comment on this crucial matter. Response: See the response above regarding consideration of severe accident risk low probability, high consequence accidents during transportation. Impact initiators labor, radiation exposure, radioactive wastes, etc. Instead, the NRC has sought to determine a conservative estimate of the likely impacts from transporting fuel and waste generated, during the license renewal term, in the vicinity of a potential repository.

Response: Section 3 of Addendum 1 addresses the issues associated with extended fuel burnup in detail. The NRC staff conclusion is that the impacts are small.

All inspection, surveillance, and test activities conducted on radioactive systems or in radiation areas were also assumed to generate radioactive wastes. Addendum 1 has been revised and Table 2 provides the fuel isotope inventory that can be compared to the sample pages of the RADTRAN computer code printout.

It was only by sheer luck that State officials happened upon the Federal Register Notice. Thomas, George. In light of the discrete purpose of this rulemaking, the NRC has sought to gauge the impacts of license renewal given the information currently available on those impacts including the transportation of spent fuel.

Fuels to Drive Our Future. These assumptions further ensure that members of the public cited by the commentors would be encompassed by the dose and risk assessments.

Feder, B. The NRC staff acknowledges that this rulemaking involves complicated, technical issues. However, as discussed in Sections 2. This reaction involves an element, such as uranium or plutonium, being struck by a neutron and splitting.
