URS Corp. named a new president Tuesday for Savannah River Remediation, the liquid-waste contractor for Savannah River Site.

Ken Rueter, as both president and project manager, will replace Dave Olson, who was recently named president of the URS-led consortium Washington River Protection Solutions at the Department of Energy’s Hanford site in Richland, Wash.

Savannah River Remediation is responsible for the closing of radioactive waste tanks, the operation of the Defense Waste Processing Facility, and associated waste facilities.

Before joining SRR, Rueter served as chief operating officer of UCOR (URS|CH2M Oak Ridge), a URS-led consortium at the government’s East Tennessee Technology Park in Oak Ridge, Tenn., responsible for cleanup and environmental remediation.
