Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Exelon Generation Company, LLC (the licensee) to withdraw its December 20, 2002, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-19 and DPR-25 for the Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Units 2 and 3, located in Grundy County, Illinois.

The proposed amendment would have revised the applicability of facility technical specifications pertaining to Reactor Protection System (RPS) instrumentation, main steam isolation valve closure and turbine condenser vacuum—low functions, to eliminate the requirement for these functions be operable while in Mode 2 with reactor pressure greater than or equal to 600 psig and delete the associated Required Action to align with the revised applicability of these functions.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on March 18, 2003, (68 FR 12952). However, by letter dated October 1, 2003, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated December 20, 2002, and the licensee's letter dated October 1, 2003, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
