S.C. DHEC Director Catherine Templeton Statement: Charleston Harbor Deepening and Conservation Collaboration

CHARLESTON -- "Three years ago, I committed to the principal architects of this agreement that I would one day stand with them at the Charleston harbor with conservationists, environmentalists, and our natural heritage on my left - and business, industry, and economic development on my right - side by side, arm in arm, to celebrate this landmark achievement.

This is what it looks like when South Carolinians with a common goal put aside their differences to accomplish something bigger than themselves.

This is what it looks like when diverse interests each do more than they must to come together for the higher good of our state.

This is what it looks like when history is made."
