Abstract by replacing the existing Environmental Ionltoring Program in its entirety by a new updated Environmental Monitoring Program that has been developed in accordance with NRC Regulatory Guide No. 4.8, "Environmental Technical Specifications for Nuclear Power Plants". We have reviewed the extent and methodology of the new monitoring program. The program includes sampling and anal]ysis of direct radiation, airborne particulates and radioiodines, soil, water, aquatic biota, sediment, milk and other terrestrial food chains. Our review has determined that the program, with minor revisions agreed to by the licensee to meet Regulatory huidance contained in Regulatory Guide 4.8, is acceptable to the staff and meets the objectives of a monitoring program for verifying projected or anticipated radioactivity concentrations and related public exposures. We have evaluated the potential for environmental impact of operation in accordance with the enclosed amendment. We have determined that the effect of the changes authorized are admini strative or relate only to the frequency, type and location of samples taken in support of the environmental monitoring program being carried out by Boston Edison to quantify the environmental impact of the operation of Pilgrim Unit No. I.
