SRS featured in new book on stimulus programs

  • Follow Government

Savannah River Site and some of the environmental cleanup projects accelerated through the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act are featured in a new book entitled, “Money Well Spent? The Truth Behind the Trillion-Dollar Stimulus, the Biggest Economic Recovery Plan in History.”

The author, Michael Grabell, a reporter for the nonprofit news organization ProPublica, visited places like Savannah River Site in South Carolina and other project sites in Elkhart, Ind., and Fremont, Ca., to interview people affected by the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression.

SRS received about $1.6 billion in stimulus funds, which enabled the rapid completion of a host of projects that otherwise would have lingered well into the future. Those efforts included decommissioning of old reactors and numerous cleanup and demolition projects.
