DOE Issues RFI for Savannah River Site Nuclear Cleanup Effort

Savannah River Site

The Department of Energy is looking for potential sources of environmental remediation services at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina to support the National Nuclear Security Administration’s site cleanup and modernization programs.

DOE said in a notice posted Wednesday on the beta SAM website that the department’s Office of Environmental Management is conducting market research to help inform acquisition planning for cleanup activities at areas immediately impacted by SRS operations.

According to the request for information, the contractor will help EM and NNSA achieve objectives for the cleanup initiative that covers 310 square miles of land previously used for nuclear weapons fabrication, specifically plutonium-239 and tritium.

Contract work will include elimination or minimization of nuclear materials, stabilization, treatment, facility decommissioning and other remediation activities for surface water, groundwater and contaminated soil.

The SRS complex encompasses the Aiken, Allendale and Barnwell counties in South Carolina and borders the Savannah River and Georgia.

Interested parties must submit responses to the RFI through Aug. 26.
