NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket No. 50-293]


Entergy Nuclear Generation Company, Entergy Nuclear Operations, 
Inc.; Notice of Withdrawal of Application for Amendment to Facility 
Operating License

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has 
granted the request of Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (the licensee) 
to withdraw its August 19, 2002, application for proposed amendment to 
Facility Operating License No. DPR-35 for the Pilgrim Nuclear Power 
Station, located in Plymouth County, Massachusetts. The licensee's 
application was supplemented by letters dated February 14, March 27, 
and April 14, 2003.
    The proposed amendment would have modified the facility Technical 
Specifications (TSs) pertaining to post-accident monitoring 
instrumentation requirements to make the TSs more consistent with the 
Standard Technical Specifications for boiling water reactors.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 24, 
2002 (67 FR 78519). However, by letter dated November 6, 2003, the 
licensee withdrew the amendment request.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated August 19, 2002, as supplemented by 
letters dated February 14, March 27, and April 14, 2003, and the 
licensee's letter dated November 6, 2003, which withdrew the 
application for license amendment. Documents may be examined, and/or
