Near Surface Disposal Facility Project – Update on the Status of the Environmental Assessment Process

Public Notice

The public comment period on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the proposed Near Surface Disposal Facility (NSDF) Project closed on August 16, 2017. Comments from members of the public, Indigenous groups and non-governmental organizations on the draft EIS as well as a consolidated table of federal comments have been submitted to the project proponent, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), for action. The CNSC also identified a number of areas where additional information is required for both the final EIS, and other technical supporting documentation.

CNL is currently addressing all comments received, as well as the CNSC's requests for information. CNL has indicated that additional time is required to complete these deliverables. As a result, timelines for the final EIS, originally expected in January 2018, and the public hearing, tentatively planned for July 2018, will be delayed. A revised timeline for project deliverables will be made available to the public once finalized.

For more information on the timeline amendment, read CNL's news release.
