[Docket No. 50-309, License No. DPR-36]

Maine Yankee Atomic Power Company; Notice of Release of Land from 
the Jurisdiction of Maine Yankee Atomic Power Company's Facility 
Operating License No. DPR-36

    On March 15, 2004, as supplemented by letters on September 2, 2004, 
and May 16, 2005, Maine Yankee Atomic Power Company (Maine Yankee) 
submitted a request to amend its license to release the remaining land 
under License No. DPR-36 with the exception of the land where the 
Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) is located, and a 
3.17 acre parcel of land adjacent to the ISFSI. Notification of the 
amendment request was published in the Federal Register on May 5, 2004 
(Vol. 69, No. 101, Page 69769).
    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff reviewed the 
Final Status Survey Report (FSSR) and concludes that: (i) Dismantlement 
and decontamination activities were performed in accordance with the 
approved License Termination Plan (LTP), and (ii) Maine Yankee's FSSR 
Supplements 1-10A demonstrate that the land to be released from 
Facility Operating License No. DPR-36, meets the radiological criteria 
for unrestricted use, as defined by 10 CFR 20.1402, by meeting site 
release criteria of 10 millirem (Total Effective Dose Equivalent (TEDE) 
per year over background (all pathways) and 4 millirem (as 
distinguishable from background) TEDE per year for groundwater sources 
of drinking water in accordance with the approved LTP. Therefore, NRC 
is releasing all land from the jurisdiction of license DPR-36 except 
the land where the ISFSI is located, and a 3.17 acre parcel of land 
adjacent to the ISFSI.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the license 
amendment request dated March 15, 2004, as supplemented by letters 
dated September 2, 2004, and May 16, 2005, and the Environmental 
Assessment dated February 12, 2003, available for public inspection at
