The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the NRC/Commission) has granted the request of Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc., to withdraw the Power Authority's of the State of New York (PASNY) the then licensee, November 29, 1999, application as supplemented October 27, 2000, for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-64 for the Indian Point Nuclear Generating Unit No. 3 (IP3), located in Westchester County, New York.
On November 21, 2000, PASNY's ownership interest in IP3 was transferred to Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (Entergy) to possess, use, and operate IP3. By letter dated January 26, 2001, Entergy requested that the NRC continue to review and act on all requests before the Commission which had been submitted by PASNY before the transfer. Accordingly, the NRC staff continued its review of PASNY's license amendment application. Subsequently, by letter dated May 12, 2001, Entergy withdrew the amendment request.
The proposed amendment would have adopted the “Standard Test Method for Nuclear Grade Activated Carbon” for charcoal filter laboratory testing with certain exceptions.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on February 9, 2000 (65 FR 6409). However, by letter dated May 12, 2001, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated November 29, 1999, as supplemented October 27, 2000, and the licensee's letter dated May 12, 2001, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
