Upcoming Event
Event Name: Savannah River Site Public Tour (SRS)
Event Occurs: Once
Event Description: In the upcoming year, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) is inviting approximately 900 members of the public to hop on board one of 25 driving tours of the Savannah River Site (SRS).

Visitors can gain an understanding about the Department of Energy's (DOE) facilities, missions and workforce that changed the face of nearby counties and helped the United States during the Cold War. Guests will also learn about current and future DOE Environmental Management and National Nuclear Security Administration missions at SRS.

The tour includes a visit to the University of Georgia's Savannah River Ecology Laboratory, where participants will hear about the ecology lab's history and mission and get an up-close view of animals found on the Site.

Due to high demand, the number of historic tours has doubled this year. There will be eight available in 2024. Four tours will stop at the Dunbarton town site. Four will be at the Ellenton town site. All Historic tours also include a walking tour of the SRS Curation Facility and a driving tour of C Reactor. In addition, two full walking tours of the streets of Ellenton have been added this year. Those tours will feature the old townsite and several historic markers throughout the Ellenton area.
