A new nuclear waste disposal site along the Ottawa River could have devastating consequences, according a report released by Ottawa Riverkeeper.

The environmental watchdog says it pored over the environmental impact statement for the new disposal site in Chalk River, Ont.

After identifying what they call holes in the proposal, Ottawa Riverkeeper released a report on Thursday saying operating the facility as it is currently would cause significant damage to the river, if it continues.
