Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Intermediate Level Waste Storage Area

In support of ongoing operations at the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), the construction of an Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) Storage Facility is proposed at the Atomic Energy of Canada (AECL), Chalk River Laboratories (CRL) site.  The new facility will create a centralized storage location for CNL's ILW until a final solution is developed.  The proposed site for the facility is located on approximately 2,100 m2 of previously disturbed land.  The physical activities associated with the construction of the facility will include a geotechnical and environmental characterization, upgrading road access and tie-in of existing utility services.  All physical activities will be conducted in accordance with CNL's Environmental Policy and applicable legislation.
