Receipt of application for Literature Survey from Suttu town in Hokkaido

Today, NUMO received application for Literature Survey, which is the 1st stage of site investigation process, from Suttu town in Hokkaido prefecture.

Following the publication of the “Nationwide Map of Scientific Features relevant for Geological Disposal” by the Japanese government in July 2017, we have been carrying out communication activities across Japan to promote understanding of the geological disposal project and the geological environment in Japan. We would like to express our sincere respect and appreciation to Suttu town which made the decision for application based on extensive discussion with the residents.

We will continue our activities of public relations, showing the progress of the Literature Survey and working on regional community development plan.

We will dedicate ourselves to communication activities throughout Japan as well as in Suttu town in order to enhance understanding of the geological disposal project, since this is the issue to be solved by whole society in Japan.
