DETROIT (AP) -- Objections to a proposal to build a nuclear waste storage site near Lake Huron's Ontario shoreline are the subject of a town hall meeting Monday evening in Detroit.

The Detroit News says the meeting is scheduled for 6:30-8 p.m. at Wayne State University's Keith Center Lecture Hall.

The meeting's organizers include Democratic state Sen. Hoon-Yung Hopgood of Taylor. He sponsored a resolution that the Michigan Senate passed in May questioning the proposal.

Ontario Power Generation is proposing the storage facility for low- to medium-level nuclear waste at a site near Kincardine, Ontario.

The company says the underground rock formations would keep the waste safe for thousands of years.

In a YouTube video, Hopgood says a radioactive leak from the storage site could threaten southeastern Michigan's drinking water.
