Security Perimeter
Dimona is surrounded by three security perimeters covering 14 square miles (36 square kilometers), and over 22 miles (36 kilometers)of fenceline. Each perimeter has an inner and outer patrol road. The inner most perimeter has two security fences with a 40 foot (12 meter) exclusion zone between.

There are at least three Entry Control Points (ECPs). The first is 300 meters south of the Highway 29, the second is one Kilometer from the facility, and the third at the edge of the inner perimeter.


Low Level Waste Burial

For years, Israel has reportedly buried low level radioactive waste at Dimona. The waste is mixed with tar and encased in 200 liter barrels and buried a site about one kilometer from Dimona.


Unidentified Areas

There are several interesting terrain features and building groupings at Dimona. As of this writing, their purpose remains unclear.
