Letter to Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz - SC Delegation Asks Department of Energy to Work With Them Regarding Funding Levels at the Savannah River Site


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Tim Scott led members of South Carolina's Congressional delegation in sending a letter to the Department of Energy (DOE) asking the department to work with the delegation regarding funding levels for liquid radioactive tank waste remediation at the Savannah River Site. Scott was joined by Senator Lindsey Graham, and Representatives Joe Wilson, Jeff Duncan, Tom Rice and Mark Sanford.

The delegation wrote, "DOE has greatly reduced funding for the liquid radioactive tank waste at SRS which penalizes the important remediation progress that has been achieved at SRS over the past four years. The 37 million gallons of high level radioactive waste that has been sitting in aging waste tanks for decades, which are beyond their design life, are South Carolina's greatest potential health risk to the people, community and environment."

"We ask that the Department work with the South Carolina delegation to find a path toward restoring funding to the liquid waste mission. This will ensure the critical environmental cleanup continues at SRS and will save taxpayers millions of dollars."
