Registration for Savannah River Site tours opens Dec. 30

Registration for the Savannah River Site's 2014 public tour program will begin Dec. 30.

More than 1,000 seats will be available during 22 tours to be held throughout the upcoming year at the Department of Energy site near Aiken.

Driving tours are offered each year at SRS to provide members of the public an opportunity to see many of the site's facilities and learn more about the site's history, current activities and future missions.

The first of the tours will be held in January. Each tour starts at the Aiken County Applied Research Center located off Highway 278 near New Ellenton and begins with an overview presentation about SRS and a safety briefing.

SRS tours are free of charge.

Each tour begins at 12:30 p.m. and typically ends at 4:30 p.m., accommodating about 50 people. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and citizens of the United States.

Reservations for spaces usually fill quickly, officials said. Interested individuals are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible once the window for reservations opens.

To register, visit the SRS website. If you experience difficulty registering online, call 803-952-8994.
