Teeswater - an NWMO candidate site for burial of Canada's HLW

[ pour la version française ]                      [ ENLARGE THE MAP ]

Teeswater, in South Bruce County, is about 30 kilometres (19 miles) from Lake Huron. If it is chosen as a “willing host community”, all of Canada’s irradiated nuclear fuel could be buried in a Deep Geological Repository in an ancient limestone formation under the town. It is one of two candidate sites being studied by the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) for this purpose.

On January 31, 2020, the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) nixed another DGR - planned to hold all of Ontario's radioactive reactor wastes OTHER than irradiated fuel. That DGR proposal has now been scrapped; it was going to be located at Kincardine (see map).
