Last Tuesday, several local mayors and MRC officials participated in a guided tour of Canadian Nuclear Laboratories’ (CNL) property in Chalk River Ont. In recent months, many local citizens groups have been up in arms over a proposed Near Surface Disposal Facility (NSDF) that is being planned at the site, about a kilometer from the Ottawa River.
The NSDF would be an engineered containment mound roughly 16 hectares in size that would eventually take on one million cubic meters of low- to intermediate-level waste.
