Editor's Note: Please see also this important article and map posted by Beyond Nuclear, showing existing nuclear facilities. Quoting verbatim from Beyond Nuclear's article Great Lakes Region Nuclear Hotspots Map:
[...]This proposed nuclear waste dump site is known officially as the OPG (Ontario Power Generation) Deep Geologic Repository and is to be built at the existing Bruce Nuclear Generating Station complex, the world's largest nuclear facility. See map below.
The map includes all aspects of nuclear power production in the Great Lakes region, including the 38 operating nuclear power plants, 12 closed plants, and four new plants proposed in Canada. It also includes the facilities that process uranium ore and manufacture the pellets, as well as tailings sites from uranium mining and milling, and facilities that store, and dispose of radioactive waste. Every site on the map is a radioactive waste site, whether operating or not.
