From our friend Bess Kellett at Botany Bay: 

Hey folks,

There is some confusion out there about Botany Bay having a beach sweep on Saturday, October 21st.WE ARE NOT. The tide that morning is high at 9:42 a.m. so there is no way we could have one. However, the town of Edisto Beach is having one. Ida Tipton is the contact and they will meet at Access #1 at 9:00 am.

Please spread the word!!!

I am tentatively scheduling one for Wednesday, November 29th because of low tide being at 9:52 am and we can start at 9:00. And there are no hunts that day!

Thanks all

Bess

"URGENT" DHEC OCRM'S PROPOSED BEACHFRONT JURISDICTIONAL LINES 

DHEC OCRM'S PROPOSED BEACHFRONT JURISDICTIONAL LINES

I am emailing to give a courtesy notice that OCRM will be releasing proposed beachfront jurisdictional lines tomorrow morning. All information regarding the proposed beachfront jurisdictional lines will be available at http://www.scdhec.gov/beach/BeachfrontJurisdiction/ tomorrow morning.

Interested parties will also be able review the current and proposed jurisdictional lines by launching the S.C. Beachfront Jurisdiction Viewer: https://gis.dhec.sc.gov/shoreline/. The proposed beachfront jurisdictional lines will be viewable tomorrow morning. An accompanying “Line Report” has been prepared to document how the new proposed line positions were established on each beach. The proposed jurisdictional lines and Line Reports will both be available for public review through the South Carolina Beachfront Jurisdiction Viewer and by appointment in DHEC OCRM offices in Beaufort, Charleston and Myrtle Beach. To schedule an appointment, please call:

Beaufort – (843) 846-9400

Charleston – (843) 953-2000

Myrtle Beach – (843) 238-4528

A 30-day public comment period will commence on October 6, 2017, and will close on November 6, 2017. Instructions for submitting public comment are available through the S.C. Beachfront Jurisdiction Viewer and will be provided at each regional public hearing.

Public Hearings will afford the opportunity for the general public to view the proposed state beachfront jurisdictional lines during the open public comment period. Regional Public Hearings are scheduled as follows:

October 23, 2017, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Technical College of Lowcountry Auditorium 

921 Ribaut Road 

Beaufort, SC 29901

 

October 24, 2017, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Horry Georgetown Technical College

Thomas Mauser Auditorium, Building 600

Current state beachfront jurisdictional lines will remain in effect until revised lines are established and adopted in final form. As required by statute, DHEC will complete its revision process prior to December 31, 2017. However, proposed jurisdictional lines are subject to the administrative appeals process.

Lastly, we understand that you will more than likely receive an influx of questions regarding the proposed lines. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions and direct your citizens' concerns our way. Please direct specific questions to our Charleston office: 843-953-0200.
