The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Union Electric Company (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated May 25, 2000, as supplemented by letters dated March 2 and 21, 2001, for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-30 for the Callaway Plant, Unit 1, located in Callaway County, Missouri.
The proposed amendment would have revised Technical Specification 3.3.9, “Boron Dilution Mitigation System (BDMS),” to eliminate the system to avoid recurring inadvertent actuations of the system.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on June 14, 2000 (65 FR 37429). However, by letter dated August 13, 2001, the licensee withdrew the proposed change. Upon further consideration by the licensee, the proposed changes to TS 3.3.9 were no longer considered an improvement to the Callaway Plant. The licensee stated that due to repairs in Refueling Outage 10 (November 1999), there were no inadvertent actuations of the boron dilution mitigation system during Refueling Outage 11 (April-May 2001).
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated May 25, 2000, and its supplemental letters dated March 2 and 21, 2001, and the licensee's letter dated August 13, 2001, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
