Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to withdraw its August 30, 1999, application for proposed amendments to Facility Operating Licenses Nos. DPR-77 and DPR-79 for the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2, located in Hamilton County, Tennessee. Notice of Consideration of Issuance of this amendment was published in the Federal Register on October 6, 1999 (64 FR 54382).

The proposed amendments would have revised the facility technical specifications (TS) by adding a Section 3.0.7 to address the use of interim provisions upon the discovery of an unintended TS action.

Subsequently, by letter dated October 17, 2000, TVA withdrew the proposed amendment application on the basis that approval of the amendment was unlikely because of legal concerns on the part of the Commission.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendments dated August 30, 1999, and the TVA's letter dated October 17, 2000, which withdrew the application for license amendments.
