NRC Sets May 1 Meeting on Turkey Point Extension

In its application, Florida Power & Light seeks an additional 20 years of operation for Units 3 and 4. Their current operating licenses will expire in 2032 and 2033.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission staffers will meet in Homestead, Fla., on May 1 to discuss the agency's Draft Environmental Impact Statement on Florida Power & Light's Subsequent License Renewal application for Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4, located in Florida City, Fla. In the application, FP&L seeks an additional 20 years of operation for the units. Their current operating licenses will expire in 2032 and 2033.

The agency is seeking public comments views on the draft conclusion that environmental issues would be minor ones, allowing the agency to issue the renewed license.

The meetings will be held at the Homestead City Hall from 1-3 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. Staff presentations will describe the environmental review process and the draft findings, with each meeting's presentations followed by a formal public comment period. NRC has scheduled open-house events from noon to 1 p.m. and 5-6 p.m., enabling members of the public to speak informally with agency staff. To register in advance to comment at the meetings or to identify an individual's special needs for attending or presenting information at the meetings, contact William Burton at 800-368-5642 x6332 or at by April 23. Requests to speak on the day of the meetings require registration no later than 12:45 p.m. and 5:45 p.m., respectively.

NRC staff also will consider written comments on the draft EIS until May 20. To comment, include Docket ID NRC-2018-0101 with the comment via the website.

FP&L submitted the Turkey Point application on Jan. 30, 2018. The subsequent license renewal process determines whether an operating reactor can extend its license for an additional 20 years (initial license renewals add 20 years to a reactor's original 40-year license).
