Initial site restoration plan.

(1) At least ninety days prior to the beginning of site preparation, the certificate holder shall provide the council with an initial site restoration plan which addresses site restoration occurring at the conclusion of the plant’s operating life, or in the event the project is suspended or terminated during construction or before it has completed its useful operating life.
(2) The plan shall parallel a decommissioning plan, if such a plan is prepared for the project.
(3) The initial site restoration plan shall be prepared in sufficient detail to identify, evaluate, and resolve all major environmental and public health and safety issues presently anticipated. It shall describe the process used to evaluate the options and select measures that will be taken to restore or preserve the site or otherwise protect all segments of the public against risks or danger resulting from the site. The plan shall include a discussion of economic factors regarding the costs and benefits of various restoration options versus the relative public risk and shall address provisions for funding or bonding arrangements to meet the site restoration or management costs. The provision of financial assurances shall include evidence of pollution liability insurance coverage in an amount justified for the project, and a site closure bond, sinking fund, or other financial instrument or security in an amount justified in the plan.
