The NWMO has a process for evaluating the suitability of potential siting areas for a deep geological repository. It includes assessing the transportation infrastructure associated with the area, and along potential routes, connections and intermodal transfer points.
To begin, we use existing information to determine if needed infrastructure exists or can be developed. Future steps will involve more detailed exploration, including mode, route and logistics studies.
As the process unfolds, we will engage with, and seek input from, communities and individuals with a shared interest in future transportation.
