Southern California Edison Company San Onofre Nuclear Generating 
Station, Units 2 and 3

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of receipt; availability; public meeting; and request

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On September 23, 2014, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission

(PSDAR) and the Site Specific Decommissioning Cost Estimate (DCE), 
dated September 23, 2014, for the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station 
(SONGS), Units 2 and 3. The PSDAR, which includes the DCE, provides an 
overview of Southern California Edison Company's (SCE's, or the 
licensee's) planned decommissioning activities, schedule, projected 
costs, and environmental impacts for SONGS Units 2 and 3. The NRC will 
hold a public meeting to discuss the PSDAR and DCE and receive 
comments.

II. Discussion

    Southern California Edison Company (SCE), San Diego Gas & Electric 
Company, City of Riverside Utilities Department, and the City of 
Anaheim, California, (the licensees), are the holders of Facility 
Operating License Nos. NPF-10 and NPF-15, for SONGS, Units 2 and 3, 
respectively. Southern California Edison Company is authorized to act 
as the agent of the other owners. By letter dated June 12, 2013 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML131640201), SCE submitted a certification to the NRC 
indicating it permanently ceased power operations at the SONGS Units 2 
and 3 on June 7, 2013. By letters dated July 22, 2013 (ADAMS Accession 
No. ML13204A304), and June 28, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13183A391), 
respectively, SCE certified that it had permanently defueled the SONGS 
Units 2 and 3 reactor vessels.
    The facility consists of two permanently shutdown and defueled 
pressurized-water reactors located in San Diego County, California.
    On September 23, 2014, SCE submitted the PSDAR and DCE for SONGS 
Units 2 and 3 in accordance with Sec.  50.82(a)(4)(i) of Title 10 of 
the Code of Federal Regulations (ADAMS Accession No. ML14272A121). The 
PSDAR includes a description of the planned decommissioning activities, 
a proposed schedule for their accomplishment, the site-specific DCE 
(submitted concurrently), and a discussion that provides the basis for 
concluding that the environmental impacts associated with the site-
specific decommissioning activities will be bounded by appropriate, 
previously issued generic and plant-specific environmental impact 
statements.

III. Request for Comment and Public Meeting

    The NRC is requesting public comments on the PSDAR and DCE for 
SONGS Units 2 and 3. The NRC will conduct a public meeting to discuss 
the PSDAR and DCE and receive comments on Monday, October 27, 2014, 
from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., PDT, at the Omni La Costa, 2100 Costa Del Mar 
Road, Carlsbad, CA 92009. The NRC requests that comments that are not 
provided during the meeting be submitted in writing by December 22, 
2014.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 2nd day of October, 2014.

    For The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Chief, Plant Licensing IV-2 and Decommissioning Transition Branch,
