Working Waterfronts Public Forums
The future of traditional working waterfronts in five South Carolina coastal communities will be discussed in a series of public forums coordinated by researchers from the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium, Clemson University, and College of Charleston. Working waterfronts in Murrells Inlet, Georgetown, McClellanville, Mount Pleasant, and Port Royal face a variety of stresses, including population growth, sea-level rise, and economic concerns. Each of those communities strikes its particular balance of fisheries, shipping, recreation, and residential use of its waterfront, and the importance of each use has changed through the years. Research results will be presented at the public meetings, which are designed to facilitate discussion and help prioritize issues.

The meetings are scheduled:

• Tuesday, Jan. 24, 5-7 p.m., Waccamaw Council of Governments, 1230 Highmarket St., Georgetown (Next Door to Winyah Auditorium)
• Wednesday, Jan. 25, 5-7 p.m., McClellanville Town Hall, 405 Pinckney St., McClellanville
• Monday, Jan. 30, 5-7 p.m., Clemson Extension Office, 102 Industrial Village Rd., Beaufort
• Tuesday, Jan. 31, 5-7 p.m., Mount Pleasant Regional Library, 1133 Mathis Ferry Rd., Mount Pleasant

Notice to City Water Customers

As part of the City of Georgetown’s effort to assure the quality of the water system, the City will be temporarily changing the treatment chemistry used to purify the water. The change is made to eliminate a build-up of harmless biofilm in the water lines.
From February 1, 2017 until February 28, 2017, the city will stop the addition of ammonia at the Water Treatment Plant and disinfect with free chlorine. As a result you may detect a small change in the taste and smell of your water. We will resume adding ammonia on March 01, 2017 to the chlorine disinfectant at the treatment plant.
If you have any questions about these changes, please call the Water Treatment Plant at 843-545-4509.
We appreciate your understanding and support of this system maintenance process.

Thank you.
