The Department of Energy is officially withdrawing its applications for water rights needed to build a rail line to Yucca Mountain. 

They told the State, "In light of recent developments, the U.S. Department of Energy does not intend to pursue the 116 subject applications and requests that these applications be withdrawn."  

State Engineer Tracy Taylor had sent DOE a letter asking them if they intended to move forward on their water rights applications. 

The State has asked Energy Secretary Chu to declare the site unsuitable and withdraw the application so that it may not be re-filed in the future.
