Short description: The report describes the activities that have been undertaken during remediation of the former uranium-related industrial sites at Pécs in Hungary. Today the former mines and their surroundings are rehabilitated, former heap piles and a number of smaller waste rock piles have been relocated to a more protected area. Ongoing core remediation activities are directed to the remediation of the tailings ponds, and also water treatment issues are most important.
