Action Under 10 CFR 2.206

    Notice is hereby given that by the following three petitions, the

    3. From Messrs. Alex Matthiessen, and Karl Coplan, on behalf of the
Riverkeeper, Inc., et al, dated November 8, 2001. 

    The petitioners requested that the NRC staff take certain specified
compensatory measures, to protect the public and environment from the
catastrophic impact of a terrorist attack on a nuclear power plant or a
spent fuel pool.

Commission's regulations. These requests have been referred to the
Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. As provided by
Section 2.206, appropriate action will be taken on these petitions

the NRC

petitions to avoid disclosure of potentially sensitive security

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 20th day of December 2001.

Brian W. Sheron,
Acting Director, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
