​DGR Submission

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), Preliminary Safety Report (PSR) and supporting documents for OPG’s Deep Geologic Repository for low and intermediate level waste were submitted by OPG to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (for the Joint Review Panel) on April 14, 2011.

The EIS consolidates and summarizes all aspects of the environmental assessment studies. It includes descriptions of EA methods, the DGR Project, and the existing environment, along with an assessment of likely environmental effects (including cumulative effects) and discussions of the EA follow-up program and the community engagement program. It also includes the Human Health Assessment.

The Preliminary Safety Report (PSR) presents the safety case that demonstrates that the DGR is safe to construct, operate and decommission, and that it will provide safe long-term management of OPG's L&ILW. Demonstrates the manner in which the DGR will comply with the applicable regulatory requirements; provides a description of the DGR site and its geological characteristics, preliminary DGR design, site preparation, construction and operation, and the results of safety assessments
