as amended, and Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 54 (10

located 12 miles north of Richland, WA. The acceptability of the 
tendered application for docketing, and other matters, including an 
opportunity to request a hearing, will be the subject of subsequent 
Federal Register notices.
