The change is necessary because questions have been raised about the continued operability of the battery until the next scheduled surveillance test that is due by March 7, 2015. The questions are based on a concern that the Battery 22 will degrade and no longer meet Surveillance Requirement 3.8.6.6 before the next scheduled test and therefore must be demonstrated to meet the criteria to ensure strict technical specification compliance.

Company, City of Riverside Utilities Department, and the City of 
Anaheim, California, (the licensees), are the holders of Facility 
Operating License Nos. NPF-10 and NPF-15, for SONGS, Units 2 and 3, 
respectively. Southern California Edison Company is authorized to act 
as the agent of the other owners. By letter dated June 12, 2013 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML131640201), SCE submitted a certification to the NRC 
indicating it permanently ceased power operations at the SONGS Units 2 
and 3 on June 7, 2013. By letters dated July 22, 2013 (ADAMS Accession 
No. ML13204A304), and June 28, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13183A391), 
respectively, SCE certified that it had permanently defueled the SONGS 
Units 2 and 3 reactor vessels.
    The facility consists of two permanently shutdown and defueled 
pressurized-water reactors located in San Diego County, California.
    On September 23, 2014, SCE submitted the PSDAR and DCE for SONGS 
Units 2 and 3 in accordance with Sec.  50.82(a)(4)(i) of Title 10 of 
the Code of Federal Regulations (ADAMS Accession No. ML14272A121). The 
PSDAR includes a description of the planned decommissioning activities, 
a proposed schedule for their accomplishment, the site-specific DCE 
(submitted concurrently), and a discussion that provides the basis for 
concluding that the environmental impacts associated with the site-
specific decommissioning activities will be bounded by appropriate, 
previously issued generic and plant-specific environmental impact 
statements.
