Ontario Proposed Radioactive Nuclear Waste to be Buried next to Lake Huron, near Thumb
From 2013 – Could radioactive material slated to be buried near the quaint town of Kincardine Ontario affect Michigan’s Thumb for the next 100,000 years? Canada’s Ontario Power Generation, is looking to find a place to bury 200,000 cubic metres of so-called low- and intermediate-level nuclear waste from the province’s atomic electricity plants. Ontario Power plans to invest over $1 billion developing the waste dump roughly 440 feet below the Lake Huron basin. When complete it could store radioactive mops to spent rods and parts.
