Le «above ground storage building» peut être rendu, en français, tout simplement par «entrepôt», terme difficilement applicable à une installation souterraine. Voir la justification qui suit.


L'entreposage des déchets conditionnés s'effectue à EDS. EDS est composé : - d'une aire de déchets technologiques destinée à stocker les coques non irradiantes de déchets issus de zones II et III, - de l'entrepôt de déchets technologiques destiné à stocker les coques irradiantes de déchets issus de zone IV, - de l'entrepôt de déchets de cisaillage destiné à stocker les fûts de déchets issus de T1 et R1.


On trouve «site de stockage de surface» (Q2385 1988 page 89), «site de stockage en surface» (RENUC 1988 volume 4 page 332), «stockage au voisinage de la surface» (RENUC 1988 volume 4 page 342), «centre de stockage de surface» (RENUC 1988 volume 4 page 295).
