Area within WHS site delcared wetland

June 4, 2013

A narrow creek within the construction property for the new Walhalla High School has been declared a wetland and, as such, according to the school district’s Richard Alexander, must be protected. While the creek is small, the property surrounding it that will be allowed to remain in a natural state appears large on a site map Alexander displayed yesterday for the Walhalla Rotary Club. “I’m not exactly sure how many acres, but it is a reasonably large area to the left south part of the building….,” Alexander told 96.3/WGOG NEWS after yesterday’s meeting. According to the district’s facilities and maintenance director, South Carolina DHEC and the U-S Army Corps of Engineers were involved in the process to declare the affected area a wetland.
