Abstract: Environment Canada, the Canadian environmental department, is participating as an intervenor in the federal environmental assessment of AECL's nuclear fuel waste disposal concept to ensure environmental issues are appropriately addressed. The review process being used by Environmental Canada, offers an independent, scientifically-based method to evaluate the concept. This paper presents that process, and discusses the work conducted to date. The paper also identifies several issues which Environment Canada believes warrant additional attention by AECL when presenting their concept for nuclear fuel waste disposal.
