Brockton – The Nuclear Waste Management Organization has completed the first phase of its preliminary assessments in Bruce County and Brockton has finally gotten a break.
The municipality is no longer in the running to host the Deep Geological Repository.
The Nuclear Waste Management Organization has dropped the municipality from its list of potential storage sites and will instead focus on South Bruce and Huron Kinloss.
Brockton Councillor Chris Peabody is relieved, saying it’s been a long and — at times — a lonely struggle to keep the proposed DGR out of his municipality.
It’s Peabody’s belief that the NWMO’s decision to drop Brockton from the list of potential sites is a direct result of the recent civic election.
Prior to the vote, Peabody was the lone voice on Council to oppose the DGR.
