[Docket No. 50-305]

Dominion Energy Kewaunee, Inc.; Notice of Withdrawal of 
Application for Amendment to Facility Operating License

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted 
the request of Dominion Energy Kewaunee, Inc., (the licensee) to 
withdraw its June 1, 2004, application for proposed amendment to 
Facility Operating License No. DPR-43 for the Kewaunee Nuclear Plant, 
located in Kewaunee County, Wisconsin.
    The proposed amendment would have modified the Technical 
Specifications (TS) to revise TS 1.0, ``Definitions,'' Table 3.5-2, 
``Instrument Operation Conditions for Reactor Trip,'' and Table 4.1-1, 
``Minimum Frequencies for Checks, Calibrations, and Test of Instrument 
Channels,'' proposed to change the requirement to perform the channel 
test and channel calibration ``once per operating cycle.'' The proposed 
changes would have added a definition for ``staggered test basis,'' 
increase surveillance test intervals for the analog channels and logic 
cabinets of the reactor protection system and engineered safety 
featured actuation system, and would have added a completion time for 
the reactor trip breakers. Subsequently, by letter date August 4, 2005, 
you withdrew the amendment request. The Commission had previously 
issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in 
the Federal Register on July 6, 2004 (69 FR 40676). However, by letter 
dated August 4, 2005, the licensee withdrew the proposed amendment.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated June 1, 2004, and the licensee's letter 
dated August 4, 2005, which withdrew the application for license 
amendment. Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
