Company to dump radioactive waste into river

OTTAWA (CP) - An environmental group says a technology company could soon be dumping increased levels of radioactive waste into the Ottawa River at Pembroke, Ont. - with the blessing of federal regulators.

The Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility says the tritium waste SRB Technologies creates in making glow-in-the-dark products like exit signs has in the past exceeded that produced by all the country's nuclear plants combined.

The group wants SRB to modernize its practices, clean up pollutants in local groundwater and stop what it's calling "out-of-control" dumping.

The environmentalists say SRB is proposing to build a canopy around its stacks to protect the local environment and divert radioactive precipitation into the Ottawa River.

They say staff at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission have approved the plan and are recommending regulators lift continuing restrictions on SRB operations after a licence renewal hearing next Monday.

SRB president Stephane Levesque says the company has been dumping acceptable levels of tritium into the Ottawa River "for a number of years" and the plan would only increase those concentrations by one-tenth of one per cent - still within the limits dictated by its current licence.
