   The Soviet Army caused substantial harm to the environment during its stay in the Czech Republic, with environmental contamination resulting from inappropriate technical characteristics of the Soviet equipment, insufficient knowledge by the military of the properties and effects of the substances it hadled, and a general lack of care for the environment. The subsequent surveying and remediation operations has had to be financed by the state budget of the Czech Republic. The main contaminants include various petroleum-derived products, solvents and degreasing agents (chlorinated hydrocarbons such as trichlorethene and tetrachlorethene). The main contamination sources were railway siding, pumping stations, pipelines, fuel storage deposts, maintenance garages, laundries, dry-cleaning units, airfields, electrical transformers, etc.
   The largest contingents of the Soviet Army were located in bases at Milovice-Mlada (northeast of Prague) and Ralsko (northern Bohemia), the former some 60 km2 and the latter some 300 km2. Both areas are situated in the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin, which contains the largest groundwater resources in the Czech Republic. The main rock types underlying the Milovice-Mlada military base are sandy and silty marlite grading up into Middle Turonian calcareous sandstone. The Cretaceous rocks are covered by essentially fluvial Quatrernary sediments. The two main aquifer systems hosted by the Cretaceous are: a basal artesian aquifer in Cenomanian sandstone and an upper Middle Turonian aquifer. A large aquifer also exists in the Quaternary sand and gravel terraces of the Jizera and Labe rivers. The Quaternary and Cenomanian aquifers provide the main drinking-water resource for Prague, with the water catchworks lying only 1 to 2 km from the edge of the military base.
   Clorinated hydrocarbon contamination was observed particularly in the vicinity of the military laundries and drycleaning units (Milovice, Lustenice, Jirice), whereas petroleum-derived substances were detected in several places
