Abstract (in english)
   The most serious contaminant of sediments in ater reservoirs of the Ohře River was found to be As followed by U, Ag, Cd, Hg, Be, Pb and Zn. Increased concentrations of these elements are probably connected with the history of mining in the Jáchymov area with affected the sediments throughout the river basin as a whole while, to a certain degree, reflecting a generally higher content of uranium in rocks of the Bohemian Massif. At the same time, Pb, Zn and Cd are typical anthropogenic contaminants, among which especially the high values of Cd and Pb are alarming. The bottom sediments in the Nechranice Water Reservoir on the Ohře River deposited after 1968 are, in general, of relatively homogeneous nature, however, with a recognizable influence of those brought in by the Lužický potok Creek.
   The main portion of the sediments consists of kaolinite, illite, clastic K-feldspar and plagioclase, accompanied by chlorite, smectite, hornblende and gypsum, while the proportion of organic lacustrine matter is low and not typical of paludal sediments
