Lower Savannah-Salkehatchie Basin Planning

Activities and reports on water planning in the Lower Savannah-Salkehatchie River basin.


River basin planning activites in the Lower Savannah-Salkehatchie river basin have been initiated under the guidance of the South Carolina State Water Planning Framework. Two public meetings were hosted by the SCDNR on August 24th at the Walterboro Wildlife Center in Walterboro, SC and on August 29th at the North Augusta Community Center in North Augusta, SC to kick-off planning activities (presentations given at each meeting can be accessed on the meetings page). An overview of the South Carolina State Water Planning Framework was provided to stakeholders in the basin, and applications to serve on the Lower Savannah-Salkehatchie River Basin Council were solicited. Formal Council meetings will begin in the Fall of 2023. Meeting agendas, presentations, recordings, and summaries can be accessed here. Please visit this website for periodic updates and new information regarding Lower Savannah-Salkehatchie river basin planning activities.

The next Lower Savannah-Salkehatchie River Basin Council meeting has been scheduled for March 7th, 2024 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (draft agenda available soon).

The Council will meet in-person with location to be determined. The meeting may be attended virtually as well. For meeting access information, please contact Scott Harder (harders@dnr.sc.gov) or Alexis Modzelesky (ModzeleskyA@dnr.sc.gov).
