While the hands-on work of the Savannah River Site is carried out locally, the site’s responsibilities and clients extend far beyond the local area.
SRS remains a significant federal asset, and as such, is impacted by government officials in Washington, D.C.
I want to take this opportunity to thank U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., for his tireless efforts on behalf of SRS. As the president and CEO of the site’s management and operations contractor, I have had a close up view of his work on site-related issues.
Graham’s support of SRS in the U.S. Senate is immeasurable.
His position on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee has been instrumental in the site receiving adequate funding for the important work we provide for the nation.
From my vantage point, Graham has always been a consistent advocate in at least three significant areas: appropriate funding for the missions SRS has been assigned; recognition of the unique capabilities of the site and its talented workforce; and a constructive, relevant role for the SRS well into the 21st century.
There are a number of forces that have to combine for the Savannah River Site to succeed.
That includes the active engagement of the S.C. Congressional Delegation. Graham has more than done his part.
I think it’s important to acknowledge his leadership and work on behalf of SRS.
President and CEO,
Savannah River Nuclear Solutions
