The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Entergy Operations, Inc., to withdraw its January 29, 2003, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-6 for Arkansas Nuclear One, Unit No. 2, located in Pope County, Arkansas.
The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications pertaining to the spent fuel pool loading restrictions by redefining the regions, inserting Metamic poison panels in a portion of the spent fuel pool, and increasing the minimum boron concentration.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on March 18, 2003 (68 FR 12950). However, by letter dated August 26, 2003, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated January 29, 2003, and the licensee's letter dated August 26, 2003, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
