SRS advisory group holding meeting in Aiken
AIKEN, S.C. (AP) — A group that keeps track of happenings at a former nuclear weapons plant in South Carolina is meeting to talk about the site's management and future.
The Savannah River Site Citizens Advisory Board is meeting Monday and Tuesday in Aiken.
On the agenda are planned discussions about communicating with the public more effectively and plans for the long-term storage of waste currently being held at the Savannah River Site. An official from Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, the contractor that manages the site, is also giving an overview of an environmental report.
The U.S. Department of Energy's 310-square-mile SRS complex once produced plutonium and tritium for atomic bombs. Work there is now focused on research and environmental cleanup.
