The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has granted the request of Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (the licensee) to withdraw its August 19, 2002, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-35 for the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, located in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. The licensee's application was supplemented by letters dated February 14, March 27, and April 14, 2003.
The proposed amendment would have modified the facility Technical Specifications (TSs) pertaining to post-accident monitoring instrumentation requirements to make the TSs more consistent with the Standard Technical Specifications for boiling water reactors.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 24, 2002 (67 FR 78519). However, by letter dated November 6, 2003, the licensee withdrew the amendment request.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated August 19, 2002, as supplemented by letters dated February 14, March 27, and April 14, 2003, and the licensee's letter dated November 6, 2003, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
