Environmental Impact Statement Update – 2020 July 2
The WR-1 Closure Project has now submitted the next revision of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) for regulatory review. In the past two years, the project team has done further work to address the comments on the draft EIS. This revised EIS incorporates feedback from Indigenous Peoples, the public and federal and provincial regulators. Click here to view the Executive Summary.
Over the next few months the WR-1 Closure Project will be reaching out to Indigenous communities, members of the public and other organizations that shared comments on the draft EIS, to dialogue on how the project incorporated their comments into the EIS. A final revision of the EIS is anticipated to be submitted to the CNSC in late 2020.
