SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Haddam Neck completed the transfer of their 
spent fuel to the independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) 
in 2005. In 2007, the decommissioning of the reactor site was completed 
and a portion of the site was released from the license.
    By application dated April 2, 2009, as supplemented March 30, 2010, 
Connecticut Yankee Atomic Power Company (CYAPC) submitted an 
application to the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), in 
accordance with 10 CFR Part 50, requesting an amendment to NRC 
Operating License No. DPR-61. CYAPC's application requested that the 
title of the Physical Security Plan in the Operating License be 
modified to reflect the proper title. The Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment and Proposed No Significant Hazards Consideration 
Determination and Opportunity for Hearing in connection with this 
action was published in the Federal Register on June 14, 2010 (75 FR 
    On September 10, 2010, the NRC approved and issued Amendment No. 
203 to Operating License No. DPR-61, held by CYAPC for the possession 
of the Haddam Neck facility pursuant to 10 CFR Part 50 and for the 
receipt, possession, and use of byproduct, source, and special nuclear 
material in accordance with 10 CFR parts 30, 40, and 70. Amendment No. 
203 is effective as of the date of issuance and shall be implemented 
within 30 days from the date of issuance.
    Amendment No. 203 complies with the standards and requirements of 
the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the NRC's 
rules and regulations. As required by the Act and the NRC's rules and 
regulations in 10 CFR Chapter I, the NRC has made appropriate findings, 
which are set forth in Amendment No. 203 Safety Evaluation Report 
(SER). The issuance of Amendment No. 203 satisfied the criteria 
specified in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(10)(ii) for a categorical exclusion. Thus, 
the preparation of an environmental assessment or an environmental 
impact statement is not required.
    The NRC has prepared a SER that documents the staff's review and 
evaluation of the amendment. In accordance with 10 CFR 2.390 of NRC's 
``Rules of Practice,'' final NRC records and documents related to this 
action, including the application for amendment and supporting 
documentation and the SER, are available electronically at the NRC's 
Electronic Reading Room, at: http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html.
