Upper Savannah Basin Planning

Activities and reports on water planning in the Upper Savannah River basin.


River basin planning activites in the Upper Savannah 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 April 10th at Tri-County Technical College in Anderson, SC and on April 11th at Hickory Knob State Park and Resort near McCormick, SC to kick-off planning activities (presentations given at each meeeting can be accessed on the meetings page). An overview of the South Carolina State Water Planning Framework was provided, and applications to serve on the Upper Savannah River Basin Council were solicited. River Basin Council members were appointed by SCDNR in June 2023 (see the council page for a list of members). Formal Council meetings will begin in July 2023, and meeting agendas, presentations, recordings, and summaries can be accessed here. Please visit this website for periodic updates and new information regarding Upper Savannah river basin planning activities.

The next Upper Savannah River Basin Council meeting has been scheduled for July 10th, 2024 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (draft agenda).

The Council will meet in-person at the Starr and Iva Water Sewer District Office in Starr, SC (104 Roy Arnold Rd, Starr, SC 29684). The meeting may be attended virtually as well.
