Savannah River Nuclear Facility Under Lockdown Amid "Security Event"

Tyler Durden's picture

According to the Savannah River site, a potential security threat is in progress that has caused emergency response. SRS says site barricades are closed to incoming traffic. According to SRS, there is no indication of any threat outside of the SRS boundaries.

The Aiken Standard reports,

The Savannah River Site confirmed the facility is experiencing a “security event” at the site’s H Area; however, the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office is calling the event a “lockdown.”


As of now, no one is allowed in or out of the facility and site barricades are closed off to incoming traffic.


Savannah River Site issued a press release stating “a potential security event is in progress that has triggered emergency response activities at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site,” and the release is “being sent to you as part of our emergency response organization information process.” 


SRS also stated there is no indication of a “consequence beyond the Savannah River Site boundaries,” and the Site will provide further information when it becomes available.


The site’s H Area is the location of H Canyon, the only hardened chemical separations facility still operating in the U.S. The primary mission of the H-Canyon Complex is to dissolve, purify and blend-down surplus highly enriched uranium from both within American borders and materials that come from other countries.


A secondary mission for H-Canyon is to dissolve excess plutonium and transfer it for vitrification in the Defense Waste Processing Facility at SRS.

From earlier this month:

From the official SRS fact sheet:

H Canyon and HB Line remain and are supporting the DOE Enriched Uranium and Plutonium Disposition Programs by reducing the quantity of fissile materials in storage throughout the United States. This supports both the environmental cleanup and nuclear nonproliferation efforts and the creation of a smaller, safer, more secure and less expensive nuclear weapons complex. The canyon is used to support the disposition of highly enriched uranium and plutonium from across the DOE Complex.

The first word out of the mouth of the nuclear plant operator on duty when the alarms went off: "Doh!"

Well, it was a federal dog, silly!

lumberjack -- nice link. they will fire the dog; or at least re-train him

it aint paranoia if they really are out too harm you's picture

The emergency lock down was issued after a K9 alerted to possible explosive residue on a delivery truck.. 


they will fire the dog; or at least re-train him-


Maybe the driver needs to quit smoking weed before a delivery. Was the driver's name Cheech?

Send in the EPA? hahahahahahahahahahahah!!!!!!!!!

Why does an McGrubber episode come to mind??  Hahahahahahahahahhaha!

Good one!!


Animas river meet the Savannah river.  Except instead of that sickly orange color, Savannah River will glow.

That nuclear plant is known for two headed turtles. No kidding.

Reptiles and amphibians are some of the first complex life forms to suffer mutations and other genetic damage from exposure to ionizing radiation.

Why does the sites shape on the map looks like a cancer cell?

Security event, such precise language that I feel all warm and tingly. I'm not worried though, probably another nun.....

Zymurguy's picture

"potential security event" that is... what bullshit statist doublespeak... it IS a security event, they've got fucking barricades up and are not letting anyone in or out.

Haul in Senator Lindsey Graham for questioning.

He's been saying "there'll be an event."

Yeah, what did he know and when did he know it?

Got any hot dogs left Ignatius?  I skipped lunch...

Psst, Ignatius, got any "cheescake" wrapped in brown paper secured with string? Word is Mancuso coughing in the mens bathroom at the bus station.

Ignatius's picture

Actually, that's a string for my lute.  As for that degenerate, Mancuso, I assure you, he shall be dealt with shortly by the most severe means.

If someone tells Lindsey that light radiation exposure may result in a fabulously glowing, sparkling complexion, he may visit the SRP on his own accord.

Look, I'm all for a collapse of the system but I'd prefer it not be one that causes our grandchildren to have 3 legs and cancer up to their ears, after it's all said and done.

Skateboarder's picture

Cancer isn't even the killer affliction to destroy any remaining cohesion within our species, and we're too late to stop. Most of our kin are already, or on the way to being autistic beyond simple attention/compulsion and/or language issues.. New normals will be redefined. The world will be a radically different place in twenty to thirty years.

My elder stepson is a victim of vaccine autism. He is fairly high functioning, goes to public schools, yet he is just over the cutoff level of what I can handle. Living and dealing with him has really opened my eyes into the behaviors of people around me.

I think you are correct in the theory that it is spreading.

Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing Autism Research Fraud at the CDC Hardcover – August 20, 2015

Vaccine Whistleblower is a gripping account of four legally recorded phone conversations between Dr. Brian Hooker, a scientist investigating autism and vaccine research, and Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist in the vaccine safety division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Thompson, who is still employed at the CDC under protection of the federal Whistleblower Protection Act, discloses a pattern of data manipulation, fraud, and corruption at the highest levels of the CDC, the federal agency in charge of protecting the health of Americans. Thompson states, “Senior people just do completely unethical, vile things and no one holds them accountable.”


This book nullifies the government’s claims that “vaccines are safe and effective,” and reveals that the government rigged research to cover up the link between vaccines and autism. Scientific truth and the health of American children have been compromised to protect the vaccine program and the pharmaceutical industry.


The financial cost of the CDC’s corruption is staggering. The human cost is incalculable. Vaccine Whistleblower provides context to the implications of Thompson’s revelations and directs the reader to political action.

"vaccine autism"

science disagrees with you

Thimerosol has mercury in it you moron.

Abbie Normal's picture

So does fish, and the water they swim in...does that mean we shouldn't eat or drink?

chunga's picture

What's your explanation for the dramatic rise in autism? There is a ton of controversy about thimeresol that's been going on for a long, long time. You go right ahead and believe CDC.

Leaving all of those factual links won't sway the troll army here one iota.

I know two people whose children developed autism after the measles vaccine. The first would be about 17 years ago and the father was threatened with legal action if he continued to go to the media. The second about 3 years ago was the son of a medical specialist.  He said the Dr. that conducted the initial research was subjected to a witch hunt, he had left out a table of statistics in the research that did NOT affect the findings. This special ist dr is a top dr and knows his facts. People have to way up the risk, there is a chance of developing autism after the vaccine but there is the risk of blindness if a child contracts measles.

Lil' Kim Chi is unleashing his weapon which is "unknown to the world" till now.

He has seized all the world's telecommunications and he will now open up his pant suit's matching trench coat and flash the world...Moo who ha ha ha ha ha!

He's unleashing Dennis Rodman?

MsCreant's picture

Is that what he calls his tool?

Urban Roman's picture

Yeah. You don't think that's too pretentious, do you?

Normalcy Bias's picture

I doubt it. It'd be terribly difficult to get many piercings in even an average sized Asian weiner.

But Dennis Rodman loves his leash.

Would make for a nice false flag.

Lots of "hot spots" in the news lately...

Which always worries me, because it's a sure sign they're trying to get you to not look at the man behind the curtain, right at the moment when he's doing something you'd be very interested in knowing about.

Always fun speculating that that might be.

Considering these bastards have a eugenics plan for us useless eaters, I'm not so sure these *aren't* THE events. Just consider how many people died and are continuing to be affected in Tianjin, and if this nuke plant goes Fukushima...well, keep watching all these events and see the pattern develop. As long as we are still alive to watch, anyway.
