Summary
Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is planning to construct the nuclear waste management facility in Ontario, Canada.

The project involves the construction of an underground waste storage facility with a storage of 200,000m3 of nuclear waste approximately 680m beneath ground in a stable limestone formation. It includes the construction of mine shafts, hoists, underground tunnels, control buildings, and treatment infrastructure and the installation of equipment for carrying waste, shielding equipment, metering units and storage tanks.

In 2002, OPG hired Golder Associates Ltd to undertake the Independent Assessment Study (IAS) to explore options to develop a facility to meet international and Canadian safety standards, the social & economic feasibility and the potential environmental effects in relation to the project.

In April 2002, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed between OPG and the Municipality of Kincardine.

In 2006, the developers appointed Hatch and Hatch Mott MacDonald for preliminary engineering studies and design of the facility. The contract covers geotechnical modeling and conceptual engineering design.

In 2009, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) contracted NWMO to manage development of DGR.

In 2010, the DGR environmental assessment (EA) was submitted completing the detailed feasibility studies, investigations and analyses.

In April 2011, a preliminary safety report in addition to the EA was submitted to the authorities for review and planning approvals.

In 2012, AECOM was appointed as surveyor for the project.

On May 6, 2015, the project secured preliminary approvals.

In August 2015, NWMO is facing opposition on the project.

In February 2016, Environmental and Climate Change Ministry (ECCM) called on OPG to further study the project.

OPG is planning to submit the update to ECCM by the fourth quarter of 2016.

In January 2017, environmental review on the project is underway.

In April 2017, Canadian Environment Assessment Agency (CEAA) was seeking information regarding the project.

In June 2017, CEAA received all necessary information regarding the project.

CEAA is in the process of preparing a draft report and analysis, which will be followed by a public comment period.

CEAA will report its recommendations to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, based on which the environmental clearance will be awarded.

Construction is expected to commence in 2018 and slated for completion in 2025 but facing opposition from local residents and municipal officials.
