DNR co-hosting Jan. 21 Savannah River Basin meeting

The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will co-host the Savannah River Basin Regional Water Resource Forum on Jan. 21 from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. at the North Augusta Municipal Center.
           
"We are kicking off our statewide water plan update with this forum," said Ken Rentiers, director of DNR’s Land, Water and Conservation division. "It will feature presentations from both agencies, along with a facilitated discussion session that will include representatives from environmental organizations, water suppliers, industry and local governments."
           
"This meeting will provide an opportunity for the public to ask questions and provide input on water resource quality and quantity issues," said David Wilson, chief of DHEC’s Bureau of Water. "It is an effort on both agencies’ part to open up a formal channel to receive feedback from the public, and share information on our plans and steps we have been taking."
