OPG has safely transported, processed and stored nuclear waste for more than 40 years. With the support of Bruce County municipalities, OPG has proposed to construct and operate a DGR that would safely isolate and contain low and intermediate level waste. The DGR would be located 680 metres below ground, in stable rock formations over 450 million years old.
