Study for deep geological nuclear waste repository to focus on two locations

And this, of course, is one of thedownsides of nuclear power - where to put the waste. On the positive side, at least is doesn't pump the waste into the air and cause gloabl warming like some power generation schemes I could mention.

The results come after the NWMO completed the first phase of preliminary assessment for the six Northern Ontario communities that expressed interest in learning about Canada’s plan for the long-term management of used nuclear fuel.

“As we prepare for more detailed studies and engagement, we need to narrow our focus,” said Kathryn Shaver, vice-president of APM Engagement and Site Selection at the NWMO. “Going forward, studies will continue in areas with strong potential to meet robust safety requirements and for the project to align with the community’s long-term vision.”
