Geocache Description:


[LAT]Kārba ir maza bundža ar blociņu, zīmuli, zīmuļu asināmo, stresa bumbiņu pirmajam atradējam un silīcija granulām, kuras nav paredzētas ārā ņemšanai. Iesaku neiet gar žogu, lai nepiesaistītu lieku uzmanību no darbiniekiem un sargiem.

Lūdzu nelieciet bildes ar konteineru. Tas, lai citiem interesantāk ir.

[ENG]The cache is a small metal can. It contains logbook, pencil, pencil sharpener, stress ball for the FTF and silica gel. I don't recommend walking near the fence in order to not attract workers and guards attention.

[LAT]"Radons" ir gandrīz virszemes repozitorija gan zemu, gan vidēji zemu radioaktīvo atkritumu apglabāšanai un uzglabāšanai. Tas atrodas 5 km attālumā no Baldones un 27 km no Rīgas. Krātuve sastāv no 2 daļām: uzraudzītās teritorijas un kontrolētās teritorijas ar 7 krātuvēm. Krātuve Nr.7 joprojām tiek izmantota.

Please do not add pictures of the cache. It can spoil the fun for someone!

 

"Radons" darbojas kopš 1962. gada. Līdz 1972. gadam tajā tika glabāti tikai vietējie radioaktīvie atkritumi, vēlāk tika nogādāti atkritumi no visas Padomju Savienības. 1986.gadā tika uzglabāti arī Černobiļas aizsargtērpi. Mūsdienās Latvijas likumdošana ir aizliegusi radioaktīvo atkritumu importu. Padomju laikos tika uzcelts Salaspils pētniecības reaktors, un tajā radītie radioaktīvie atkritumi tiek uzglabāti arī "Radonā".

 

1991.gadā valdība pasludināja rīkojumu paplašināt "Radonu", veidojot 2 jaunas krātuves, taču tas netika ieviests. 2008. gadā valdība pieņēma jaunu rīkojumu par "Radona" paplašināšanu. Arī tas netika īstenots. Vietējo iedzīvotāju grupa, kas bija pret “Radona” paplašināšu, sapulcējās NVO "Mūsu Baldone” un organizēja vairākus protesta pasākumus, un pēc tam devās uz administratīvo tiesu, apgalvojot, ka rīkojums par paplašinājumu ir nelikumīgs.

[ENG] „Radons“ is a near surface repository for both burial and storage of low and intermediate level radioactive waste. It is located 5 km from the city of Baldone and 27 km from Riga, the capital. The repository consists of 2 parts: supervised area and controlled area with 7 vaults. Vault No.7 is still in use.

 

„Radons“ is in operation since 1962. Until 1972, only local radioactive waste was stored there, later waste from other Soviet states was brought - Latvia was a part of the Soviet Union from 1940 to 1990. In 1986 protective garments from Chernobyl were stored there, too. Nowadays import of radioactive waste is forbidden by Latvian legislation. During the Soviet time, Salaspils Research Reactor was built and radioactive waste produced there is also stored in „Radons“.

 

In 1991 the government made an order for extension of „Radons“, building 2 new vaults, but the extension was not implemented. In 2008 the government made a new order concerning the extension of „Radons“. As of April 2013, it is not implemented. A group of locals who were against the extension gathered into NGO “Musu Baldone”, organized several protest activities and later went to the Administrative Court claiming that the order about the extension was unlawful.
