Nebraska Public Power District: Cooper Nuclear Station; Notice of 
Availability of the Final Supplement 41 to the Generic Environmental 
Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants

    Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC, Commission) has published a final plant-specific supplement to 
the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of 
Nuclear Plants (GEIS), NUREG-1437, regarding the renewal of operating 
licenses DPR-46 for an additional 20 years of operation for the Cooper 
Nuclear Station (CNS). CNS is located near Brownville, Nebraska, on the 
Missouri River in Nemaha County. Possible alternatives to the proposed 
action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative 
energy sources.
    As discussed in Section 9.3 of the final Supplement 41, based on: 
(1) The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2) the Environmental Report 
submitted by Nebraska Public Power District; (3) consultation with 
Federal, State, and local agencies; (4) the staff's own independent 
review; and (5) the staff's consideration of public comments, the 
recommendation of the staff is that the Commission determines that the 
adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for CNS are not so 
great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy-planning 
decision makers would be unreasonable.
    The final Supplement 41 to the GEIS is publicly available at the 
NRC Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 
Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852, or from the NRC's Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS). The ADAMS Public 
Electronic Reading Room is accessible at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. The accession number for the final Supplement 41 to the 
GEIS is ML102100371. Persons who do not have access to ADAMS, or who 
encounter problems in accessing the documents located in ADAMS, should 
contact the NRC's Public Document Room Reference staff by telephone at 
1-800-397-4209, or 301-415-4737 or by e-mail at [email protected]. 
In addition, the Auburn Memorial Library, located at 1810 Courthouse 
Avenue, Auburn, NE 68305, has agreed to make the final supplement to 
the GEIS available for public inspection.
