DescriptionThe management of natural resources at the Savannah River Site (SRS) has been variously executed over the years to meet conservation and restoration objectives, to provide research and educational opportunities, and to generate revenue from the sale of forest products. However, these management activities have been implemented under the constraints imposed by the Site's nuclear mission and the objectives for which the SRS was established. This management challenge has been further complicated by the vast area encompassed by the Site, as well as the complex spatial mosaic of operational facilities and natural features. This section provides a general description of both the operational infrastructure and the land-use framework within which natural resource management activities occur.
