The petitioners raise safety concerns regarding the construction of the National Repository for Low- and Intermediate-Level Radioactive Waste in Radiana, Bulgaria, very close to the Danube River and the border with Romania. They argue that the construction will contaminate underground waters with radioactive waste (RAW), some of which has a half-life of several hundred thousand and even several tens of millions of years. The petitioners highlight legal issues with the environmental impact assessment and claim that the quantity of RAW to be deposited at Radiana will far exceed the estimates of the current project. They allege breaches of the Aarhus and Espoo Conventions and call for a halt of funding for this project.
