Pee Dee River Basin Council Is Underway


The Pee Dee River Basin Council was recently initiated under the guidance of the South Carolina State Water Planning Framework. Two public meetings were held on March 21st in Conway, SC and on March 22nd in Florence, SC to kick off planning activities. An overview of the South Carolina State Water Planning Framework was provided to the basin's stakeholders and applications to serve on the Pee Dee River Basin Council were solicited.


The Pee Dee River Basin Council was appointed in May 2022, and the first RBC meeting was conducted in late June 2022. The RBC will meet once per month for 24 months to develop the plan.


SCDNR is the lead state agency with support from SCDHEC. JD Solomon, Inc is the primary facilitator and Brown & Caldwell will develop the final report. Technical support is being provided by CDM Smith and USGS.
