II. Discussion

    PG&E is the holder of Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-80 and 
DPR-82 for Diablo Canyon, Units 1 and 2, respectively. The license 
provides, among other things, that the facility is subject to all 
rules, regulations, and orders of the NRC now or hereafter in effect. 
The facility consists of a pair of Westinghouse four-loop pressurized-
water reactors located in San Luis Obispo County, California. By letter 
dated November 27, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18331A553), the licensee 
informed the NRC that it will permanently cease power operations at 
Diablo Canyon, Units 1 and 2, on November 2, 2024 and August 26, 2025, 
respectively.
    On December 4, 2019, PG&E submitted the PSDAR containing the Cost 
Summary from Diablo Canyon, Units 1 and 2 DCE in accordance with 
section 50.82(a)(4)(i) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML19338F173). The PSDAR includes a description of 
the planned decommissioning activities, a proposed schedule for their 
accomplishment, cost summary from the DCE, 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 for Diablo 
Canyon, Units 1 and 2. The NRC will conduct a public meeting to discuss 
the PSDAR and receive comments on Thursday, March 19, 2020, from 6:00 
p.m. until 8:00 p.m., at the Board of Supervisors Chambers, County 
Government Center, 1055 Monterey Street, San Luis Obispo, California 
93408. The NRC requests that comments that are not provided during the 
meeting be submitted as noted in the ADDRESSES section of this document 
in writing by June 22, 2020.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 18th day of February 2020.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Jennifer L. Dixon-Herrity,
Chief, Plant Licensing Branch IV, Division of Operating Reactor 
Licensing, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
