Indiana Michigan Power Company and Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant, 
Units 1 and 2; Notice of Availability of the Final Supplement 20 to the 
Generic Environmental Impact Statement for the License Renewal of 
Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2

    Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(the Commission) has published a final plant-specific supplement to the 
``Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS), NUREG-1437,'' 
regarding the renewal of operating licenses DPR-58 and DPR-74 for an 
additional 20 years of operation at Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant, Units 
1 and 2 (CNP). CNP is located in Berrien County, Michigan, about 55 
miles east of Chicago, Illinois. Possible alternatives to the proposed 
action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative 
energy sources.
    In Section 9.3 of the final Supplement 20 to the GEIS, the staff 
concludes that based on: (1) The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2) 
the environmental report submitted by Indiana Michigan Power Company; 
(3) consultation with Federal, State, and local agencies; (4) the 
staff's own independent review; and (5) the staff's consideration of 
public comments, the recommendation of the staff is that the Commission 
determine that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for 
CNP Units 1 and 2 are not so great that preserving the option of 
license renewal for energy-planning decision makers would be 
    The final Supplement 20 to the GEIS is available for public 
inspection in the NRC Public Document Room (PDR) located at One White 
Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, or from the
