SUMMARY: 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 Licenses 
NPF-39 and NPF-85 for an additional 20 years of operation for Limerick 
Generating Station, Units 1 and 2 (LGS). The LGS site is located in 
Pottstown, PA. Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license 
renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative energy sources.

DATES: The final supplement is available as of September 4, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As discussed in Section 9.3 of the final 
supplement, the staff determined that the adverse environmental impacts 
of license renewal for LGS are not so great that preserving the option 
of license renewal for energy-planning decisionmakers would be 
unreasonable. This recommendation is based on: (1) The analysis and 
findings in the GEIS; (2) information provided in the environmental 
report and other documents submitted by Exelon Generation Company, LLC; 
(3) consultation with Federal, state, local, and Tribal agencies; (4) 
the NRC staff's independent environmental review; and (5) consideration 
of public comments received during the scoping process and on the draft 
Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 27th day of August, 2014.

    For The Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Brian Wittick,
Chief, Reactor Projects Branch 2, Division of License Renewal, Office 
of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
