Stop The Great Lakes Nuclear Dump Inc.

Radioactive nuclear waste buried beside 21% of the world's fresh water supply defies common sense

Reasons To Be Concerned

7.  2nd Dump Planned

OPG's Nuclear Waste Management Organization (a corporation 92% owned by OPG) is planning to establish a second underground Nuclear Waste Dump, which they call DGR2, that will be used to bury irradiated nuclear fuel, or high level waste.  Many of the potential sites for DGR2 are situated in the Great Lakes Basin.  If OPG can convince the regulators and the Canadian government that burying intermediate level radioactive nuclear waste approximately 400 metres from Lake Huron is safe, then a precedent may be set for the burying of high level radioactive nuclear waste beside the Great Lakes.
