SC has plenty of water

October 12, 2012

South Carolina has plenty of water.  The challenge, according to lawmakers,  is managing the natural resource. Six state senators and representatives, including Anderson Rep. Don Bowen, discussed  issues such as surface water permits, preserving wetlands, saltwater intrusion and marketplace pricing.  At the state conference, Senator Phil Leventis said water pricing should be revamped.  Instead of discounting the price for customers who use more water, Leventis said, it should be the reverse.  The more consumers use, the more they should pay.  The panelists want a list of the top 10 water priorities in the state.
