AIKEN, S.C. (April 12, 2018) — Savannah River Remediation (SRR) employees once again rolled up their sleeves and participated in Project Care, supporting the United Way of Barnwell County.

Since the SRR liquid waste contract began in 2009 at the Savannah River Site, SRR employees have raised their hands each year to help their neighbors. Arriving early on April 6, 2018, Project Care volunteers improved the Barnwell County Family YMCA facility, refreshed the walking trail at Fuller Park, and planted a vegetable garden at Generations Unlimited Senior Center.

Leading the volunteer efforts, SRR employee Virginia Nettles said uniting together to help those less fortunate is the true meaning of Living United.

“The walking trail that we refreshed fosters the relationships between parents and their children, where together they experience the many different sounds, colors, and surroundings of the outdoors,” Nettles said. “I enjoy the experience each year when I have volunteered with my co-workers for Project Care to help the Barnwell County community.”
SRR is a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M, and BWX Technologies, Inc. Critical subcontractors for the contract are AREVA, Atkins, and AECOM N&E Technical Solutions.
