AIKEN, S.C. (May 31, 2017) — Savannah River Remediation (SRR) employees welcomed their class of 2017 summer college interns, who began arriving this month.
SRR is responsible for the remediation of radioactive liquid waste that was generated at the Savannah River Site (SRS) as by-products from the processing of nuclear materials for national defense, research, medical programs, and outer space missions. Hosting students over the summer helps SRR work towards its mission, and by giving the students meaningful assignments and deadlines, provides students with a snapshot of the liquid waste mission at SRS.
This year’s interns come from many colleges, including Clemson University, College of Charleston, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, Georgia State University, Georgia State University College of Law, Georgia Tech, South Carolina State University, University of Alabama, University of Georgia School of Law, University of South Carolina, and the University of Wisconsin, totaling 25 interns. They will be working in areas ranging from General Counsel to Business Systems Information Technology to Flowsheet Engineering, among other fields.
SRR Summer Internship Coordinator Allison Brown said she always looks forward to welcoming the interns to the Site and guiding them throughout their internships over the summer.
“Internship season at SRR is an exciting time as employees have the opportunity to bestow their experience and knowledge onto the college students,” Brown said. “The interns bring fresh ideas and perspectives to SRR as we integrate them into our workforce and make them part of the team.”
SRR is composed of a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M, and BWX Technologies. Critical subcontractors for the contract are AREVA, Atkins, and AECOM Technical Services.
