The Great Lakes Nuclear Dump: Ontario Power Generation’s Plan to Bury Nuclear Waste on Shores of Lake Huron

 Ontario Power Generation (OPG), a multi-billion dollar corporation wholly owned by the Province of Ontario, plans to build a nuclear waste dump at the Bruce Nuclear Power Plant site, Municipality of Kincardine, Ontario “located approximately 1 km inland from the shore of Lake Huron at the surface and more than 400 metres below the deepest near-site point of Lake Huron.”   http://tinyurl.com/arc34y2  , page 55  OPG owns all Ontario’s nuclear plants and all radioactive nuclear waste created.

2.     Low and intermediate level radioactive nuclear waste will be buried in the nuclear waste dump. Intermediate level nuclear wastes are highly radioactive and many remain toxic for over 100,000 years.  Some are as dangerous as nuclear spent fuel.  No scientist or geologist can provide a 100,000 year guarantee that this nuclear waste dump will not leak.

3.     Approval of the nuclear waste dump in the Municipality of Kincardine (DGR1) will set precedents (toxicity of waste, proximity to lake, geology) and smooth the way for the much publicized second underground nuclear waste dump for the  high level nuclear spent fuel involving 21 communities (DGR2).  Kincardine’s DGR1 is the Trojan Horse in our midst.

4.     OPG is paying $35.7million to Saugeen Shores, Huron-Kinross, Arran-Elderslie, Brockton, Kincardine.  All are adjacent to the Bruce Nuclear Power Plant site.  $10.5 million has already been paid even before approval to construct the dump is received.  OPG can unilaterally cancel payment if municipality fails to support the nuclear waste dump proposal. http://tinyurl.com/b2qtcya

5.     40 million people in 2 countries rely on the Great Lakes for drinking water. http://tinyurl.com/aq7q5hw .
