SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    In accordance with Sec.  51.118 of title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC is making available the final EIS for the 
Construction Permit Application submitted for the SHINE facility. The 
NRC published the draft EIS in the NRC in the Federal Register on May 
14, 2015 (80 FR 27710), and the Environmental Protection Agency noticed 
the availablity of the draft EIS on May 22, 2015 (80 FR 29701). The 
public comment period on the draft EIS ended on July 6, 2015, and the 
comments received are addressed in the final EIS (Accession No. 
ML15288A046). The final EIS is available as indicated in the ADDRESSES 
section of this document.

II. Discussion

    As discussed in Chapter 6 of the final EIS, after weighing the 
environmental, economic, technical, and other benefits against 
environmental and other costs, and considering reasonable alternatives, 
the NRC staff recommends the issuance of the Construction Permit to 
SHINE, unless safety issues mandate otherwise. This recommendation is 
based on: (1) SHINE's Environmental Report; (2) the NRC staff's 
consultation with Federal, State, and local agencies; (3) the NRC 
staff's independent environmental review; and (4) the NRC staff's 
consideration of public comments.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 16th day of October 2015.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
David J. Wrona,
Chief, Environmental Review and Guidance Branch, Division of License 
Renewal, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
