Waste Storage is broader than the restrictive term “Waste Storage Facilities” entitling the Discussion Paper.
“Figure 1: Location of Radioactive Waste Management Sites in Canada” is solely associated with this Waste Storage Discussion Paper and is too general to be meaningful. The locations of all the sites should be labelled according to waste function: Production, Storage and/or Disposal of UF/HLW, ILW and LLW as defined by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). Also, the American term Spent Fuel in Figure 1 should be replaced by the traditional Canadian term Used Fuel. World Nuclear News has also drifted away from the term “spent fuel” to “used fuel.” This Figure should be corrected and should be attached to each amended Discussion Paper to ensure clarity.
