Regarding the Impact of a Commercial Airport at Homestead Air Force Base Site on Safety

By 

Abstract

NRC questioning whether the proposed conversion of the Homestead Air Force Base to a commercial airport represented a risk to the Turkey Point Nuclear plant. The NRC has subsequently issued a request for information regarding the Air Base conversion to Florida Power and Light Co. (FPL), with a response requested within 60 days. The enclosed response provides our best estimate of risk related to the operation of a commercial airport at the Homestead Air Force Base site. This risk estimate is based on data currently available to us regarding proposed number of operations, flight paths, and proposed flight mix (i.e., military versus commercial versus general aviation) for single runway operation in the year 2014. Our communications with the Homestead Air Force Base Conversion Agency and with the Federal Aviation Administration indicate that the number of operations, flight paths, and mix of operations is currently under review as part of development of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS).
