Rebecca Williams of Michigan Radio's Environment Report first told you last year that Ontario Power Generation has proposed building a nuclear waste disposal facility at its Bruce Nuclear Power Site.

 
The site near the city of Kincardine and would be located less than a mile from Lake Huron.
 
If approved, the site would house 52 million gallons of low and intermediate level nuclear waste.
 
Among those expressing alarm about this proposal are Congressman Sander Levin, Gary Peters, John Dingell, and my next guest, Congressman Dan Kildee, Democrat from Flint Township.
