Entergy Operations 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 Entergy Operations Inc. (Entergy, the licensee), to 
withdraw its September 17, 2008, application for proposed amendment to 
Facility Operating License (FOL) No. NPF-38 for the Waterford Steam 
Electric Station, Unit 3, located in St, Charles Parish, Louisiana.
    The proposed amendment would have revised FOL to add a license 
condition on the extension of the reactor vessel inservice inspection 
(ISI) interval. This proposed license condition is the result of a 
condition in the NRC safety evaluation (SE), issued by letter dated May 
8, 2008, on Westinghouse Owners Group (WOG), topical report WCAP-16168-
NP, Revision 2, ``Risk-Informed Extension of the Reactor Vessel In-
Service Inspection Interval.'' The Pressurized Water Reactor Owners 
Group, formerly known as WOG, issued WCAP-16168-NP-A (Approved), 
Revision 2, on June 13, 2008, incorporating the NRC SE dated May 8, 
2008. The ISI interval extension part of a relief request is being 
separately evaluated by NRC and independent of this amendment request.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on November 4, 
2008 (73 FR 65696). However, by letter dated June 3, 2009, the licensee 
withdrew the proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated September 17, 2008, and the licensee's 
letter dated June 3, 2009, which withdrew the application for license 
amendment. 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. Publicly available records will be accessible electronically 
from the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS)
