Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated February 21, 2006, with supplemental letters dated May 3 and September 27, 2007, and January 25, 2008, for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-42 for the Wolf Creek Generating Station, located in Coffey County, Kansas. Start Printed Page 12782

The proposed amendment would have revised Technical Specification (TS) 5.5.9, “Steam Generator (SG) Tube Surveillance Program,” to exclude portions of the steam generator tube below the top of the tubesheet from periodic tube inspections based on the application of structural analysis and leak rate evaluation results to re-define the primary-to-secondary pressure boundary. In addition, there were also proposed changes to add new reporting requirements to TS 5.6.10, “Steam Generator Tube Inspection Report.”

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment, on the above proposed amendment application, that was published in the Federal Register on April 11, 2006 (71 FR 18377). However, by letter dated February 14, 2008, the licensee withdrew the proposed amendment.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated February 21, 2006, with supplemental letters dated May 3 and September 27, 2007, and January 25, 2008, and the licensee's letter dated February 14, 2008, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
