Siting regions placed in reserve

On 21st November 2018, the Federal Council decided that the siting regions Jura-Südfuss, Südranden and Wellenberg should be placed in reserve.

In Stage 2 (2011 – 2018) of the site selection process, Nagra carried out geoscientific investigations to allow a comparison of the siting regions from the viewpoint of safety and thus provide the basis for the Federal Council's decision. Stage 2 ended on 21st November 2018: The Federal Council decided that, for both L/ILW and HLW, the siting regions Jura Ost, Nördlich Lägern and Zürich Nordost should undergo further investigation in Stage 3 (DETEC media release in German). The siting regions Jura-Südfuss, Südranden and Wellenberg remain in the process as reserve options but will not be investigated further.

The siting regions in grey have been placed in reserve. The siting regions in green and orange will undergo further investigation in Stage 3.
