DHEC Requesting Information

COLUMBIA, S.C.- Kestrel Horizons, LLC, current Trustee for the Pinewood Site Custodial Trust ("Trust"), has resigned effective October 31, 2014. As a result, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) announced today that it is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit information from vendors who are interested in providing Trustee services.

The RFI will extend until October 3, 2014 and information from vendors will be due on that date.
