Savannah River Site recently hosted faculty members from USC Salkehatchie and USC Aiken to tour facilities around the Site and evaluate opportunities for future partnerships.
“We are so thankful for the opportunity to have such an in-depth tour of SRS! With our colleagues from USC Salkehatchie, the USC Aiken faculty hoped to learn more about the operations and needs of SRNS, SRNL, and SRR,” said USCA Interim Dean of the College of Science and Engineering Chad Leverette. “There are so many great opportunities for us and our students to partner with SRS going forward. With the new perspective provided by the tour, we have already had follow up conversations with SRS staff on growing our partnership.”
During the driving portion of the tour, visitors were able to view the following areas.
- M Area: Clean-Up and Closure
- F Area: F-Canyon/F Tank Farm
- E Area: Low-level Waste Disposal Facilities
- J Area: Salt Waste Processing Facility
