Nuclear Management Company, LLC, Palisades Nuclear Plant; Notice 
of Availability of the Final Supplement 27 to the Generic Environmental 
Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants, Regarding the 
License Renewal of Palisades Nuclear Plant

    Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC, Commission) 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 
license DPR-20 for the Palisades Nuclear Plant (Palisades) for an 
additional 20 years of operation. Palisades is located on the eastern 
shore of Lake Michigan in Covert Township on the western side of Van 
Buren County, Michigan, approximately 4.5 miles south of the city 
limits of South Haven, Michigan. Possible alternatives to the proposed 
action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative 
energy sources.
    As discussed in Section 9.3 of the final Supplement 27, based on: 
(1) The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2) the Environmental Report 
submitted by Nuclear Management Company, LLC; (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 Palisades are not 
so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy-
planning decision makers would be unreasonable.
    The final Supplement 27 to the GEIS is publicly available at the 
NRC Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 
Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, or from the NRC's Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS). The ADAMS Public 
Electronic Reading Room is accessible at <A HREF="http://adamswebsearch.nrc.gov/dologin.htm";>http://adamswebsearch.nrc.gov/dologin.htm</A>.
 The Accession Number for the final Supplement 27 to the 
GEIS is ML062710300. Persons who do not have access to ADAMS, or who 
encounter problems in accessing the documents located in ADAMS, should 
contact the NRC's PDR reference staff by telephone at 1-800-397-4209, 
or 301-415-4737, or by e-mail at <A HREF="mailto:pdr@nrc.gov";>pdr@nrc.gov</A>. In addition, the South 
Haven Memorial Library, 314 Broadway Street, South Haven, Michigan, has 
agreed to make the final supplement 27 to the GEIS available for public
