SCDNR announces Nov. 29 public meeting to introduce draft Broad River Basin Plan

October 31, 2023

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) has announced a public meeting on Nov. 29 in Spartanburg to introduce the draft Broad River Basin Plan to the basin’s stakeholders.

The public meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 29 at the Spartanburg County Office of Emergency Services, 175 Community College Drive in Spartanburg.

The draft plan was developed over a two-year period by the Broad River Basin Council, a working group of stakeholders with water interests in the basin, under the guidance of the South Carolina State Water Planning Framework published in 2019. The plan is the second of eight river basin plans scheduled to be completed over the next several years for each of the eight planning basins in the state. The draft Broad River Basin Plan includes an assessment of current and future water availability in the basin and documents water management strategies that can help ensure water is available for all future uses in the basin for the next 50 years.

The draft Broad River Basin Plan is available for review and download on the SCDNR website at

The public meeting will serve as a venue for presenting the draft plan to the basin’s stakeholders and for soliciting public comments on the plan. Public comments will be accepted from Nov. 29 through Jan. 2, 2024, with submission instructions found at the website noted above. Public involvement is critical to the goal of ensuring that future generations of South Carolinians have secure, well-managed supplies of our most critical natural resource—water.
