Dominion Energy Kewaunee, Inc. Kewaunee Power Station; Notice of 
Availability of the Final Supplement 40 to the Generic Environmental 
Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants Regarding the 
License Renewal of Kewaunee Power Station

    Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC) 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 License DPR-43 
for an additional 20 years of operation for Kewaunee Power Station 
(KPS). The KPS site is located on the shore of Lake Michigan, 
approximately 27 miles east-southeast of Green Bay, WI. Possible 
alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) include no action 
and reasonable alternative energy sources.
    As discussed in Section 9.4 of the final supplement, the staff 
determined that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal 
for KPS are not great enough to deny the option of license renewal for 
energy-planning decision makers. This recommendation is based on: (1) 
The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2) information provided in the 
environmental report submitted by Dominion Energy Kewaunee, Inc.; (3) 
consultation with Federal, State, and local agencies; (4) the staff's 
own independent review; and (5) consideration of public comments 
received during scoping and on the draft Supplemental Environmental 
Impact Statement.
    The final Supplement 40 to the GEIS is publicly available at the 
NRC Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 
Public File Area O-1F21, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville,
