[Docket No. 50-271; License No. Dpr-28]

Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee, LLC and Entergy Nuclear 
Operations, Inc.; Receipt of Request for Action Under 10 CFR 2.206

    Notice is hereby given that by petition dated October 11, 2005, Mr. 
Jonathan M. Block requested that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC) take action with regard to Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station 
(Vermont Yankee). The petitioner requested that the NRC require a 
temporary closure or de-rating of Vermont Yankee.
    As a basis for this request, the petitioner stated that evacuations 
would be impossible as a result of recent storm damage to the city of 
Keene, town of Hinsdale in New Hampshire, and other portions of New 
Hampshire that are part of existing evacuation routes for Vermont 
Yankee or within the effluent pathway in an emergency event.
    The petition is being treated pursuant to 10 CFR 2.206 of the 
Commission's regulations. The petition has been referred to the 
Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. As provided by 
Section 2.206, appropriate action will be taken on this petition within 
a reasonable time. Copies of the petition are available for inspection 
at the Commission's Public Document Room, located at One White Flint 
North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), 
Rockville, Maryland. Publicly available records will be accessible from 
the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Public 
Electronic Reading Room on the Internet at the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. Persons who do not have access to 
ADAMS or who encounter problems in accessing the documents located in 
ADAMS, should contact the NRC PDR Reference staff by telephone at 1-

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
