Comprehensive Study Report
Bruce Used Fuel Dry Storage Facility - Extension of the Public Consultation Period
Ontario Hydro is proposing to construct a dry storage facility for used nuclear fuel produced at the Bruce Nuclear Power Development (BNPD). This storage facility is needed to allow the Bruce A and Bruce B generating station to continue operating as planned and approved. The facility will be located within the BNPD site.
Under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (the Act), the Atomic Energy Control Board, as the responsible authority for the project, has directed Ontario Hydro to conduct a comprehensive study of the proposal. A copy of the comprehensive study report was submitted by the Atomic Energy Control Board to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency.
Pursuant to the Act, the Agency now invites public comments on the conclusions, recommendations and on any other aspect of the comprehensive study report.
Following a request from the public for additional time to prepare comments, the Agency has decided to extend the period of consultation.
Your comments must be received at the Agency by November 21, 1998.
Please mail, fax your comments to:
