TAIPEI, Taiwan — A remote island of offshore Penghu County and a sparsely populated rural township in eastern Taiwan were chosen yesterday as the final suggestions for a site for a permanent radioactive waste dump.

According to a panel of experts under the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the final site of the dump will be selected between Penghu’s Wangan island and Taitung County’s Daren township.

The announcement of the two locations will be gazetted from Wednesday until April 16, with a referendum among residents of the two counties to be held in two months at the earliest to determine whether they will allow the dump to be built in their areas
