This work presents the first estimate of the radioactivity and sediment deposition rate of the Drenova reservoir. The radioactivity and sedimentation rate were computed applying the Pb-210 and Cs-137 methods. Samples of Pb-210 and Cs-137 were taken from four boreholes drilled in the Drenova reservoir in June 2010. Vertical distribution of the natural and artificial radionuclides in four boreholes was examined using a gamma spectrometry measurement with HpGe detectors, Gamma X type (10 keV-3 MeV). Activities ranging from 122-8 Bq/kg were found for Pb-210, and from 140-0.8 Bq/kg for Cs-137. The sedimentation rate in the Drenova reservoir varied from 1.96 to 2.90 cm per year for unsupported Pb-210 and 0.47 to 5.33 cm per year for Cs-137.
