It Flows Downstream: Water in South Carolina
Show Notes

This week, we’re talking about water. Will South Carolina have enough of it? Too much? Is it fishable, swimmable, and drinkable? We talk to State Representative Gary Clary from Pickens County, and Megan Chase from Upstate Forever.

Public Concern is the weekly podcast from the South Carolina Conservation Coalition. The name of our podcast comes from Article 12 of the South Carolina Constitution, which is all about the functions of government: “The health, welfare, and safety of the lives and property of the people of this State...and the conservation of its natural resources are matters of public concern.”
