AIKEN, S.C. ― Deputy Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette toured the Savannah River Site (SRS) for the first time in late March, visiting SRS facilities and engaging the workforce and community leaders.
“It was a great visit at Savannah River Site, where I learned more about your impressive work in stockpile stewardship, environmental cleanup, and putting science to work,” Brouillette told the workers and community members. “You have a strong legacy of important work to the Department and our nation, and I look forward to working with you to accomplish even more.”
Brouillette met with community leaders at an event hosted by the SRS Community Reuse Organization at the SRS Museum in downtown Aiken. He also attended an informal roundtable luncheon with SRS early career professionals. Brouillette talked about his upbringing and career experience and listened to federal and contractor employees share their educational background, experience, and aspirations as the next-generation nuclear workforce.
