The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has received notice from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) of its intent to apply for a licence to construct and operate a used fuel dry storage facility at the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station (DNGS) site in Clarington, Ontario.
If licensed, the facility would be designated as a Class IB Nuclear Facility under the Nuclear Safety and Control Act.
Before the Commission makes its decision on OPG's application to construct and operate a used fuel dry storage facility, an environmental assessment must be completed in compliance with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. The purpose of an environmental assessment is to identify the possible environmental effects of a proposed project, and to determine whether these effects can be mitigated before the project is allowed to proceed.
