[Docket Nos. 50-272 and 50-311]

PSEG Nuclear, LLC; Exelon Generation Company, LLC; Salem Nuclear 
Generating Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2; Notice of Partial Withdrawal of 
Application for Amendment to Facility Operating License

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has 
granted the request of PSEG Nuclear LLC (PSEG), on behalf or PSEG and 
Exelon Generation Company, LLC (the licensees) to withdraw a portion of 
its April 15, 2004, application and the August 11, 2004, and August 11, 
2005, supplements for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License 
Nos. DPR-70 and DPR-75 for the Salem Nuclear Generating Station, Unit 
Nos. 1 and 2, located in Salem County, New Jersey.
    One of the proposed changes would have permitted a modification to 
the Salem, Unit No. 1, containment cooling system. Specifically, PSEG 
proposed to install a new closed-loop chilled water system to supply 
cooling water to the containment fan cooling units during normal 
operation. The emergency containment cooling water system would remain 
the safety-related source of cooling water for postulated accidents. 
The request involved changes to the system configuration, revisions to 
the analysis of containment temperature and pressure following a 
design-basis event, and associated changes to the Technical 
Specifications. The Commission had previously issued a Notice of 
Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal 
Register on October 12, 2004 (69 FR 60684). However, by letter dated 
August 11, 2005, PSEG withdrew the above-referenced proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated April 15, 2004, as supplemented by 
letters dated August 11, 2004, and August 11, 2005. 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 01 F21, 11555 
Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland. Publicly-available

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
