The now-closed Hostim repository

The Czech Republic also has one closed repository which is located around three kilometres east of the town of Beroun in the abandoned Hostim I (also known as Alkazar) limestone mine. In the 1990s a detailed inventory was made of the waste stored and finally it was decided to permanently seal the facility, which took place in 1997. The repository is now owned by the Beroun municipal authority and SÚRAO conducts regular monitoring of the radiation situation in the surroundings of the facility.
