Aiken, South Carolina/Savannah River (bordering the state of Georgia) 1953-1972
During the 1950s, SRS produced chemicals and elements used in the manufacturing of nuclear weapons, specifically tritium and plutonium. The site had five reactors and several chemical separation facilities helping with production. These additional worksites were built over a span of 310 miles, bordering both South Carolina and Georgia. A large number of former SRS worksite employees who could have been potentially exposed reside on the Georgia side of the Savannah River.
