NWMO secures more land for repository studies

Canada's Nuclear Waste Management Organisation has shared a map showing the potential deep geological repository site in South Bruce, Ontario. The organisation has now secured just over 1500 acres (600 hectares) of land to conduct its studies.

South Bruce is one of two potential hosts in NWMO's site selection process for a deep geological repository for Canada’s used nuclear fuel. Earlier this year, the organisation announced it had signed agreements with landowners in South Bruce for 1300 acres; yesterday it said it has signed further agreements increasing this to 1500 acres. The agreements include a combination of option and purchase arrangements that allow NWMO to conduct studies while allowing landowners to continue using the land.
