process was published in the Federal Register on October 24, 2008 (73 
FR 63517). A COL is an authorization to construct and (with specified 
conditions) operate a nuclear power plant at a specific site in 
accordance with established laws and regulations.
    The purpose of this notice is to inform the public that NUREG-1941 
is available for public inspection. The DEIS can be accessed: (1)

numbers for the DEIS are ML102140231 and ML102140235. Persons who do 
not have access to ADAMS, or who encounter difficulty accessing the

on the date that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency publishes a 
Notice of Filing in the Federal Register, which is expected to be 
August 13, 2010; such Notices are published every Friday. The Notice 
will identify the end date of the comment period. To be considered,

publication date and page number of this Federal Register Notice. 
Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be posted on 
the NRC Web site and on the Federal rulemaking Web site http://www.Regulations.gov.
    Comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact 
information, therefore, the NRC cautions against including any 
information that should not be publicly disclosed. The NRC requests 
that any party soliciting or aggregating comments received from other 
persons for submission to the NRC inform those persons that the NRC 
will not edit comments or remove any identifying or contact 
information, and therefore, they should not include any information in 
their comments that they do not want publicly disclosed.
    The NRC and USACE staff will hold two public meetings to present an 
overview of the DEIS and to accept public comments on the document on 
Thursday, September 23, 2010, at the Plantation Inn, 9301 West Fort 
Island Trail, Crystal River, Florida. The first meeting will convene at 
1:30 p.m. and will continue until 4:30 p.m., as necessary. The second 
meeting will convene at 7 p.m., with a repeat of the overview portions 
of the first meeting, and will continue until 10 p.m., as necessary. 
The meetings will be transcribed and will include a presentation of the 
contents of the DEIS and the opportunity for interested government 
agencies, organizations, and individuals to provide comments on the 
draft report. To be considered, comments must be provided, either 
orally or in writing, during the transcribed public meeting. 
Additionally, the NRC and USACE staff will host informal discussions 
one hour before the start of each meeting during which members of the 
public may meet and talk with NRC and USACE staff members on an 
informal basis. No formal comments on the DEIS will be accepted during 
these informal discussions.
    Persons may pre-register to attend or present oral comments at the 
meeting by contacting Mr. Douglas Bruner by telephone at 1-800-368-

depending on the number of persons who register. Members of the public 
who have not registered may also have an opportunity to speak, if time 
permits. Mr. Bruner will need to be contacted no later than September 
16, 2010, if special equipment or accommodations are needed to attend 
or present information at the public meeting, so that the NRC staff can
