Savannah River Remediation is laying off 465 employees later this month as part of its involuntary separation program, according to a letter sent today to SRR employees.

The employees’ last day will be Sept. 27.

In the letter, interim president Stuart MacVean wrote, “Employees have been selected for separation based on forecasts of staffing levels needed to safely support projected scope without the necessity for rehiring of separated employees or backfilling of the positions of separated employees.”
