Savannah River Site


The Savannah River Site is a DOE facility near Aiken, South Carolina that has played a key role in defense and energy research. Investigators at SRS have also been leaders in the field of environmental remediation. Innovative methods of characterizing and cleaning contaminated aquifers have been developed and demonstrated at SRS for more than 20 years. Many of the techniques now in widespread use were developed at SRS. We tour the SRS facility and learn about ongoing and past investigations from scientists, like Brian Looney and Mary Harris, who have made important discoveries at the site.
