Stormwater program set March 28 in Charleston County’s Hollywood

Stormwater impacts and the management effects on the Hollywood community will be a featured discussion from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, March 28 at R.D. Shroder Middle School.

The Town of Hollywood and the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR), through the ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve, will host an educational discussion aiming to inform the public about stormwater management and the impact of pervious surfaces on the environment. This program is part of an on-going effort by DNR to provide the knowledge and tools coastal decision-makers need to address critical resource management issues.

Hollywood Mayor Gerald Shuster will present information about the town’s efforts to address stormwater. Dr. Fred Holland, with National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s Hollings Marine Lab, will discuss stormwater effects on tidal creeks and marshes. Neil Desai, Charleston County stormwater engineer, will provide details about the county’s stormwater fee and stormwater planning.
