I. Introduction

    Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.106, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC) is providing notice that it has terminated license SUC-1581 for 
the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) (Licensee), and has 
released its Bay City, Michigan, Tobico Marsh State Game Area site for 
unrestricted use. The Licensee's request for an amendment to authorize 
decommissioning of its Bay City, Michigan site was previously noticed 
in the Federal Register on July 2, 2004 (69 FR 41855) with an 
opportunity to request a hearing.
    MDNR provided a final radiological status survey and performed an 
on-site and off-site dose analysis to demonstrate the site meets the 
license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20. In 
addition, NRC staff conducted independent measurements of soils and 
surfaces at the site.
    The NRC staff has evaluated MDNR's request, has reviewed the 
results of the final radiological survey, and has determined that the 
site meets the unrestricted release dose criteria in 10 CFR 20.1402. 
The staff prepared a Safety Evaluation Report (SER) to support its 
termination of the MDNR license.
