Stream Conservation

South Carolina has 30,000 miles of streams that flow through our cities, towns, and neighborhoods. For many of us, childhood memories include the adventures of fishing, wading, or swimming in a nearby creek; and early encounters with wild creatures and nature’s beauty occurred while exploring the margins of a stream.

Our state’s waterways provide habitat for wildlife and a place for us to recreate and enjoy. The protections of these waterways are essential in maintaining clean water too.
