National Radioactive Waste Management Facility
The following can be attributed to a spokesperson for the Australian Radioactive Waste Agency (ARWA):
“The process to site a National Radioactive Waste Management Facility included extensive technical and heritage assessments, and an extremely thorough assessment of stakeholders’ views.
“That said, as ARWA has stated over many years, we acknowledge and respect the views of people who are for or against the facility.
“There is no Native Title over Napandee, however some Traditional Owners have expressed concern about the project. We look forward to our continuing engagement with local Indigenous communities.
“More broadly, we will continue to work closely with the Kimba community and broader stakeholders throughout this process.”
