Abstract

From 1960 to 1990 the former Soviet-German Wismut company milled uranium ore at the Seelingstädt mill in Thuringia, Germany. The mill tailings were disposed into Trünzig tailings pond from 1960 to 1967. The tailings pond is currently dry-decommissioned in situ. The paper presents the conception for diversion of runoff from the remediated Trünzig uranium tailings pond into the regional catchment area enclosing four main ditches from the pond to the receiving streams and one planned runoff retention basin to control runoff from the southern part of the tailings pond in the long term.
