DGR Open Houses

Brockton | by Robyn Garvey  

NWMO is holding two open houses in Brockton about plan to bury used nuclear fuel.

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization is hosting an open house Wednesday and Thursday about its proposal to store used nuclear fuel.

Residents are invited to find out information between 11 AM till 7 PM at the Walkerton Legion.

NWMO Communication Manager Michael Krizanc says the open house will provide residents with an opportunity to ask questions and become better informed about the deep geological repository.

A recent screening of Brockton by Nuclear Waste Management staff gave the municipality the thumbs up to move into the next phase of the project.

Technical and social science experts will be on hand at the open house to field questions and concerns about the project.

Copies of the initial screening of Brockton will also be available to the public.

There will be hands on exhibits that address the actual construction of a deep geological repository and the transportation of the nuclear materials.

Krizanc urges the public to attend the event to decide for themselves whether this is a project they could support or not.

Currently there are 18 communities in Canada that have expressed an interest to learn more about the project -- including Brockton and Saugeen Shores.
