The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission or NRC) has granted the request of Entergy Operations Inc. (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated February 22, 2010, for a proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-38 for the Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3, located in St. Charles Parish, Louisiana.
In view of the originally planned steam generator (SG) replacement during the spring 2011 refueling outage (RFO), the proposed changes would have modified the facility technical specifications (TSs) pertaining to TS 6.5.9, “Steam Generator (SG) Program,” and TS 18.104.22.168, “Steam Generator Tube Inspection Report,” to eliminate the currently allowed SG tube alternate repair criteria and to modify the SG tube inservice inspection frequency. However, the licensee has decided to postpone the SG replacement to the fall 2012 RFO and by letter dated January 19, 2011, withdrew the proposed change.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on April 20, 2010 (75 FR 20633).
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated February 22, 2010, and the licensee's letter dated January 19, 2011, which withdrew the application for license amendment (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession Nos. ML100550137 and ML110210111, respectively). Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland.
