Abstract

Subject of this survey is measuring of background artificial and natural radioactivity of air, water and soil in the city of Novi Grad, Republic of Srpska. This is a first step of environmental monitoring of this area before opening of the nuclear waste material disposal nearby in Trgovinska gora in Croatia. Trgovinska gora is located not more than half kilometer beeline from the city of Novi Grad. Previous underground military ammunition repository is turned into nuclear waste disposal nearby natural border (river Una) between Croatia and Republic of Srpska. In order to be able to measure potential leakage of nuclear waste outside of disposal, we made background radioactivity measurements of 226Ra, 232Th, 40K, 238U, 235U, 137Cs, 210Pb, 90Sr, 3H, in the soil, water and mud. Also, we measured 222Rn in the soil and air and gamma dose rates. Measuring places were chosen upstream and two downstream in the city. Measuring results showed typical background concentration for this part of continental Europe.
