Just three days into his new job, Savannah River Remediation President Ken Rueter is keenly aware that major challenges lie ahead.
The company hired to clean up Savannah River Site’s Cold War nuclear waste faces fiscal 2014 with fewer federal dollars and a smaller workforce – but a mission whose demands remain the same.
“The scope of what we do will not be compromised,” said Rueter, during an interview Wednesday with The Augusta Chronicle. “But the way it’s delivered may be changed.”
