Environment Agency Consultation on waste from new nuclear reactors

It is the Environment Agency’s job to regulate discharges and waste disposals from nuclear power stations in England and Wales. The Agency has been working with the Office for Nuclear Regulation on a Generic Design Assessment (GDA) to assess the new reactor designs before individual site applications are made. The Agency invited views on its views formed so far in June 2010.

A consultation document and a series of other documents are available for the two reactor types – the UK EPR and the AP1000. The documents are available here.

The consultation closed on 18th October 2010. A summary of responses on the two reactor types is available here.

The NWAA response to this consultation is available here.
