Florida Power & Light Company; Acceptance for Docketing of an 
Application for Combined License for Turkey Point Units 6 & 7 Nuclear 
Power Plants

    By letter dated June 30, 2009, as supplemented by a letter dated 
August 7, 2009, Florida Power & Light (FPL) submitted an application to 
the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for a combined license 
(COL) for two AP1000 pressurized water reactors in accordance with the 
requirements contained in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR) part 52, ``Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear 
Power Plants.'' These reactors will be identified as Turkey Point Unit 
6 & 7 Power Plants and they are to be located at the existing Turkey 
Point facility in Miami-Dade County, Florida. A notice of receipt and 
availability of this application was previously published in the 
Federal Register (74 FR 38477) on August 3, 2009.
    The NRC has determined that FPL has submitted information in 
accordance with 10 CFR part 2, ``Rules of Practice for Domestic 
Licensing Proceedings and Issuance of Orders,'' and 10 CFR part 52 that 
is acceptable for docketing. The docket numbers established are 52-040 
and 52-041.
    The NRC will perform a detailed technical review of the 
application. Docketing of the application does not preclude the NRC 
from requesting additional information from the applicant as the review 
proceeds, nor does it predict whether the Commission will grant or deny 
the application. The Commission will conduct a hearing in accordance 
with 10 CFR part 2 and will receive a report on the COL application 
from the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards in accordance with 10 
CFR 52.87, ``Referral to the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards 
(ACRS).'' If the Commission finds that the COL application meets the 
applicable standards of the Atomic Energy Act and the Commission's 
regulations, the Commission will issue a COL, in the form and 
containing conditions and limitations that the Commission finds 
necessary and appropriate.
    In accordance with 10 CFR part 51, the Commission will also prepare 
an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. Pursuant to 
10 CFR 51.26, and as part of the environmental scoping process, the NRC 
intends to hold a public scoping meeting. Detailed information 
regarding this meeting will be included in a future Federal Register 
    Finally, the Commission will announce in a future Federal Register 
notice the opportunity to petition for leave to intervene in the 
hearing required for this application by 10 CFR 2.104 and 52.85.
    Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the NRC's 
Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public 
File Area O-1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, 
Maryland, and will be accessible electronically through the Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Public Electronic 
Reading Room link at the NRC Web site http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. The application is also available at http://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/col.html. Persons who do not have access to ADAMS 
or who encounter problems in accessing documents located in ADAMS 
should contact the NRC PDR Reference staff by telephone at 1-800-397-
4209, 301-415-4737, or by e-mail to [email protected].

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland this 4th day of September 2009.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Amy M. Snyder,
Senior Project Manager, AP1000 Projects Branch 1, Division of New 
Reactor Licensing, Office of New Reactors.
