SRR Makes Great Strides During the Past Year

Stuart MacVean, SRR President and Project Manager

Cleaning up legacy liquid waste from the Cold War is a top priority at the Savannah River Site (SRS). Savannah River Remediation (SRR) is contracted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to focus on safely dispositioning this waste and operationally closing million-gallon waste tanks.

SRR is making great strides in executing our mission.

The waste – a more radioactive sludge, a less radioactive salt, and contaminated water – is dispositioned through various liquid waste facilities. Removing this waste from the tanks is essential to the Site's mission of cleaning and operationally closing them.

Liquid waste accomplishments for Fiscal Year 2015 included:

The fiscal year operational accomplishments and tank closures continue to reduce risk and set the stage for the future.

One key reason SRR employees were successful in Fiscal Year 2015 is because they worked the greatest number of hours without a days-away injury in the 6-plus years of the SRR contract, nearly 10 million safe hours.

By doing each job safely, we were able to accomplish more of our mission objectives. I'm proud of their determination to focus on safety while providing the government with solid results based on innovation and cost effectiveness.

In all, our work can be summarized in two words: We deliver.

I encourage you to read through this website for the details of our work and our success. You will see our employees are dedicated to reducing the risk of the legacy liquid waste at SRS.
