Welcome to the internet home of Concerned Citizens of Renfrew County and Area , a non-governmental, volunteer organization that has been working for the clean-up and prevention of radioactive pollution from the nuclear industry in the Ottawa Valley for 40+ years. Our current focus is nuclear waste, in particular the two irresponsible proposals by a multinational consortium to dispose of nuclear waste beside the Ottawa River at Chalk River and Rolphton, Ontario, upstream of Ottawa-Gatineau and Montreal. Please see the resources page for a series of fact sheets on these proposals and much more!
