Environmental Reports

In addition to BWXT Nuclear Energy Canada Inc. (BWXT NEC) having an environmental monitoring program to demonstrate that the public and the environment are protected from emissions related to our facility's nuclear activities, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has also implemented its Independent Environmental Monitoring Program (IEMP) to verify that the public and the environment around licensed nuclear facilities are safe. The IEMP is separate from, but complementary to, the CNSC's ongoing compliance verification program. The IEMP involves taking samples from public areas around the facilities, and measuring and analyzing the amount of radiological and hazardous substances in those samples. CNSC staff then collect the samples and send them to the CNSC's laboratory for testing and analysis.

Peterborough IEMP Results:

The IEMP 2014 and 2018 results indicate that the public and the environment in the vicinity of the BWXT Peterborough facility are protected and that there are no expected health impacts. These results are consistent with the results submitted by BWXT and the conclusions of available health studies for uranium processing facilities – demonstrating that the licensee’s environmental protection program protects the health and safety of people and the environment.
