The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Duke Energy Corporation (the licensee) to withdraw its October 15, 2003, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-35 for the Catawba Nuclear Station, Unit No. 1, located in York County, South Carolina.
The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications to allow the continued operation of Catawba Unit 1 with only one fully-operable train of the Containment Spray System until midnight on November 9, 2003.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the The Herald newspaper on October 19, 20 and 21, 2003, and the Charlotte Observer newspaper on October 20 and 21, 2003. However, by letter dated October 22, 2003, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated October 15, 2003, and the licensee's letter dated October 22, 2003, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
