Last Day for Nuclear Waste Input


Today is the last day anyone can offer input or suggestions on the design of the process to select a storage facility site for high level nuclear waste.

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is responsible for long term management of Canada's used nuclear fuel.

A draft plan on how to site he deep geological repository will be prepared next yer and will be subject to public comment.

Ontario Power Generation is proposing to store low to intermediate level waste in a DGR beneath the Bruce nuclear site in Tiverton.

OPG maintains high level waste will NOT be stored there.

Site selection for a high level waste DGR will focus on Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick.

Anyone wishing to comment on plans or make suggestions should contact the NWMO.

OMG! Why am I laughing hysterically? Go on everybody, make your suggestions to these guys! Anyway, I said that with no ad income, I'm totally staying out of this....

ps. Note the Freudian Slip at the beginning: 'high level nuclear waste'.
