Indiana Michigan Power Company and Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant,
Units 1 and 2; Notice of Availability of the Final Supplement 20 to the
Generic Environmental Impact Statement for the License Renewal of
Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2

Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission
(the Commission) has published a final plant-specific supplement to the
``Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS), NUREG-1437,''
regarding the renewal of operating licenses DPR-58 and DPR-74 for an
additional 20 years of operation at Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant, Units
1 and 2 (CNP). CNP is located in Berrien County, Michigan, about 55
miles east of Chicago, Illinois. Possible alternatives to the proposed
action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative
energy sources.
In Section 9.3 of the final Supplement 20 to the GEIS, the staff
concludes that based on: (1) The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2)
the environmental report submitted by Indiana Michigan Power Company;
(3) consultation with Federal, State, and local agencies; (4) the
staff's own independent review; and (5) the staff's consideration of
public comments, the recommendation of the staff is that the Commission
determine that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for
CNP Units 1 and 2 are not so great that preserving the option of
license renewal for energy-planning decision makers would be
The final Supplement 20 to the GEIS is available for public
inspection in the NRC Public Document Room (PDR) located at One White
