Plant Decommissioning

CMCG supported the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and Humboldt Bay Power Plant (as well as members of CMCG supported Yankee Rowe, Maine Yankee and Connecticut Yankee) with emergency preparedness transition to a de-fueled condition to allow for regulatory relief from the commitments of an operating condition Emergency Preparedness Program. This support was at a time when station personnel were leaving, either through attrition or to pursue other opportunities, making maintenance of the Emergency Response Program under the requirements of an operating plant as well as developing a de-fueled emergency response program difficult to manage. Supporting tasks included:

• Performing comprehensive analyses of the existing Station Emergency Plan for impact to determine potential changes applicable for a de-fueled condition
• Performing 50.54(q) analyses for immediate relief from operating condition requirements
• Generating comprehensive schedules for developing a De-fueled Emergency Plan Program
• Developing De-fueled Emergency Plans, Implementing Procedures (which include De-fueled Emergency Action Levels), and Training Materials
• Developing Drill and Exercise scenarios applicable to de-fueled stations
• Reviewing existing Offsite commitments and Letter of Agreements for potential relief opportunities

CMCG staff additionally supported the transitioning of the Humboldt Bay Power Plant and Yankee Rowe Nuclear Station Emergency Preparedness Program from a de-fueled to an ISFSI condition performing similar tasks as listed above.
