The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Southern Nuclear Operating Company, Inc. (the licensee) to withdraw its December 15, 2011, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-57 and NPF-5 for the Edwin I. Hatch, Units 1 and 2, located in Appling County, Georgia.

The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications related to the plant service water (PSW) and ultimate heat sink surveillance requirements for the minimum water level in each PSW pump well of the intake structure.
