The aim of this study is to assess the impact of nuclear facility effluent during decommissioning process on the seed germination and growth of the test organism Lepidium sativum, as well as to assess the biological effect of Cs-137 on the roots (meristematic cells) and sprouts (cells of parenchyma) of the test organism Lepidium sativum.The investigations were performed on water and the bottom sediment from the monitoring station of Lake Drūkšiai (the cooling-pond of the Ignalina NPP), as well as from the Ignalina NPP's effluent channels IRD-1,2 (industrial rain drainage channel) and TWO (technical water outlet channel) before the INPP shutdown (2007–2009) and after (2010–2015). The 137Cs impact on the test organism using the low activity concentration solutions of 25 and 250 Bq/L was also investigated.
