Bechtel Selected For Savannah River Joint Venture

Construction and engineering giant Bechtel said Tuesday it had been selected as part of a joint venture to provide liquid waste services at the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River Site in South Carolina, the former nuclear weapons production facility.
