The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC (the licensee) to withdraw its November 15, 2010, application for proposed amendment to Renewed Facility Operating Licenses DPR-38, DPR-47, and DPR-55, for the Oconee Nuclear Station, Units 1, 2, and 3, respectively, located in Oconee County, South Carolina.

The proposed amendment would approve changes to the updated final safety analysis report to allow operation of a reverse osmosis system during normal plant operation to remove silica from the borated water storage tank and the spent fuel pool.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 14, 2010 (75 FR 77911). However, by letter dated April 3, 2012 (Agencywide Documents and Access Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML12095A184), the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
