200,000 cubic metres 
20131106 

From John: Hello:
I'm a journalist reporting on the proposal to bury 200,000 cubic metres of radioactive waste below ground near Kincardine, Ontario. I'm trying to put this figure into some kind of perspective for readers  particularly in the U.S., where most are unfamiliar with the metric system. I don't know whether there's any particular frame of reference that would be enlightening  U.S. football fields, Olympicsized swimming pools, etc. Can you help? Thanks very much in advance, John Answered by Harley Weston.
