S.C. Floodwater Commission: Economic Development Task Force


This task force is charged with identifying and acting upon the numerous economic opportunities that exist associated with an increase in water from river systems and along the South Carolina coast line. Expansion of lake systems including canals and ramps in areas such as Marion County through river diversions could open opportunities for lake and/or canal watersports and recreation while providing for potential electricity generation. Canal systems along the coast and in the low country could have the potential to utilize underused and lowlying areas for tourist/economic development.
