Edisto Island – Tier Review Study – 2011

In 2009, eight advisories were issued at the stations along the St. Helena Sound side of Edisto Island.  Because there are no obvious or known sources of pollution, and because advisories have been a rare occurrence on Edisto, S.C. DHEC staff are conducting a study in Big Bay Creek to determine if a change in the tier status of these stations is warranted.  Currently, DHEC staff sample all stations on the Island twice per month between May 15th   and October 15th.

Please review the documents attached.  More data will be posted as it comes in and the final report will be posted here at the end of the season.
