Savannah River Remediation employees have welcomed their class of 2017 summer college interns.

This year's 25 interns come from many schools, including Clemson University, College of Charleston, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, Georgia State University, Georgia State University College of Law, Georgia Tech, South Carolina State University, University of Alabama, University of Georgia School of Law, University of South Carolina, and the University of Wisconsin.

The interns will be working in areas ranging from general counsel to business systems information technology to flowsheet engineering, among other fields.

Allison Brown, internship coordinator, said she always looks forward to welcoming the interns to the site and guiding them throughout their internships over the summer.

"Internship season at SRR is an exciting time, as employees have the opportunity to bestow their experience and knowledge onto the college students," Brown said in a news release.

"The interns bring fresh ideas and perspectives to SRR as we integrate them into our workforce and make them part of the team."

SRR is responsible for the remediation of radioactive liquid waste that was generated at Savannah River Site as a byproduct from the processing of nuclear materials for national defense, research, medical programs and space missions.

Hosting students over the summer helps SRR work towards its mission, and giving the students meaningful assignments and deadlines provides them with a snapshot of the liquid waste mission at SRS.

SRR is composed of a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M and BWX Technologies. Critical subcontractors for the contract are AREVA, Atkins and AECOM Technical Services.
