Savannah River Site Dose Reconstruction Project
Aiken, South Carolina


CDC first became involved in health studies at Savannah River Site in 1992 following a memorandum of understanding between the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Energy.

Project Activities

Results of this project, released in 1998, indicated that the largest radiation dose to those who resided near the site was likely due to exposure to radon and radon decay products and uranium. The results also indicated that the estimated dose to the lung resulting from this exposure was significantly greater than the estimated site-related dose to any other organ.

Current Status of Project

The project was completed in September, 2006.
