Bulgaria's Danube town of Kozloduy, home of the country's only Nuclear Power Plant is holding Saturday a referendum on building a final repository facility for low- and intermediate-level radwaste in the area.

A total of 18,000 people have the right to vote in the referendum, organized by Mayor Milko Torbov. Voting takes place in 28 sections, 16 of them in Kozloduy and the rest in the other four villages from the municipality.

The facility will cost between BGN 70 M and BGN 100 M and its construction is part of the conception for safe exploitation of nuclear Units.

Experts commented for SNA that the referendum is rushed, because the exact spot for the facility hasn't even been chosen yet.
