Huron Kinloss Residents who want to learn more about a plan to store nuclear waste underground in their municipality can attend an open house on Thursday in Ripley.
The Nuclear Waste Management Organization is hosting an open house at the Ripley Huron Community Centre from 1pm to 8pm Thursday, and from 9am to 3pm, on Friday.
It’s a chance to learn more about the site selection process underway for a deep geological repository to store used nuclear fuel.
Current work such as planning, economic potential, and geotechnical studies will be explained.
Central Huron, and South Bruce are also part of the Phase 2 Preliminary Assessment Studies.
