South Carolina contains 30,000 miles of rivers and streams that drain waters from the Stat's 20-million acres of land and eventually flow to the Atlantic Ocean.
Watersheds, the land areas drained by rivers, are sometimes lumped into larger areas called river basins. The small map (below) shows four river bains of South Carolina -- the Savannah, Santee, Pee Dee and the ACE (Ashley-Cooper, Combahee-Coosawhatchie, and Edisto). Only the ACE basin lies completely within South Carolina. The others drain parts of North Carolina and Georgia.
