The Water Resources Team has been busy working to provide a variety of resources for SC residents. Ponds continue to be one of our most popular topics, so in addition to responding to the numerous calls from individuals across the state, we created a three-part Healthy Pond Webinar series to provide seasonal recommended actions and considerations in a timely manner. We also published the first in a series of Land Grant Press articles related to ponds: Ponds in South Carolina.
The Water Team also developed several programs to inform and empower residents throughout the state. The most recent, Dam Ownership in SC, provides virtual, on-demand education on dam maintenance and considerations. The recently released Streambank Repair Manual provides low-cost, effective suggestions to help stabilize small streams.
Upcoming events include Farming for Clean Water: Best Management Practices for New and Beginning Farmers ($15, 8/26 @ 11:30 am), Be Well Informed ($25, 9/23 @ noon, with sample, drop off on 9/20) offers the opportunity to have private well water screened for a variety of constituents and learn the basics of well maintenance.
