Title: Remediation of the Acidic Groundwater Impacting the Discharge Canal in D Area

Abstract

The Savannah River Site (SRS) is located in Aiken, Allendale and Barnwell Counties of South Carolina, adjacent to the Savannah River (Figure 1). The D Area Powerhouse was first operated in 1952 and was critical infrastructure for the start of heavy water production in 1952. Figures 2 and 3 are aerial oblique photographs of the D Area in 1951 and 1953. Figure 2 shows the powerhouse and bubble tower facilities under construction, while Figure 3 shows the operating powerhouse and bubble towers. The bubble tower facility recovered heavy water from the Savannah River which was used to moderate site nuclear reactors.
