HAKLI, Don

I have read your Final Study, Choosing a Way Forward. Having done so I still have a major concern which you have not addressed in the material.

The Adaptive Phased Management plan which is going to lead to a centralized storage facility and deep geological repository may appear to be the best solution.

The problem I find is that if this concept is not proven to be safe there is no backup plan as an alternative. It appears that the final decision has been made.

Considering the money that will be spent in the lead up to the point of centralized storage and testing there will be no turning back.

In other words there should be an added section to the plan which clearly states that if the deep geological repository cannot be proven to be safe another "Safe" alternative should be found.

Without this important section being added to the plan all of your hard work and planning will have been for nothing or at least lacking in a important safeguard.


We'd like to hear from you
