UPDATE: Sierra Club’s Michigan Chapter opposes OPG’s Deep Geological Repository proposal

In April 2017, we provided an update on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s (CEAA) criticism that OPG’s report on its Lake Huron Deep Geological Repository (DGR) project proposal was inadequate and failed to provide information the government had requested, asking it to try again. This resulted in a delay in the Federal Minister’s decision on the project until later next year. On Sept 5th 2017, Sierra Club’s Michigan Chapter made a submission to the Lake Huron Lakewide Action and Management Plan (LAMP), which includes objections to Ontario’s DGR and the transport of radionuclides from Chalk River. Attached is the final draft of their submission (see pages 4-5).For questions or comments, please contact Christine Elwell, SCO’s Green Energy Campaign Chair, at: christine.elwell [at] sympatico.ca.
