The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Tennessee Valley Authority (the licensee) to withdraw its May 22, 2003, application for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-77 and DPR-79 for the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2, in Hamilton County, Tennessee.

The proposed amendment would have revised the limiting condition for operation for Technical Specification (TS) Section 3.7.5, “Ultimate Heat Sink.” The licensee requested that the maximum emergency raw cooling water temperature requirement in TS 3.7.5.b be increased from 83 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) to 87 °F and that the minimum ultimate heat sink water elevation in TS 3.7.5.a be increased from 670 feet to 674 feet.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on July 8, 2003 (68 FR 40719). However, by letter dated July 17, 2003, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
