Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of the Tennessee Valley Authority (the licensee) to withdraw its September 23, 2004, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-90 for the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant, Unit No. 1, located in Rhea County, Tennessee.

The proposed amendment would have revised Technical Specification Table 3.3.2-1, “Engineered Safety Feature Actuation System Instrumentation,” to allow the auxiliary feedwater start signal upon trip of all main feedwater pumps to be required only when one or more of the turbine driven main feedwater pumps are operating.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 7, 2004 (69 FR 70722). However, by letter dated July 28, 2006, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated September 23, 2004, as supplemented by letter dated May 25, 2006, and the licensee's letter dated July 28, 2006, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
