Today’s Speaker – Bob Perry, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, Director of the Office of Environmental Programs.
Bob spoke about water, something all living things need, be it plant or animal. He discussed the current status of water in our state and looked toward the future. Water shortage is a problem at times and we need to plan carefully to avoid “unintended consequences”. On the other hand, we are blessed with numerous lakes rivers and streams. He made the point that the Waccamaw, Pee Dee and numerous tributaries are cleaner now than they were when he was a kid. He congratulated the Waste Water and Sanitation Districts for the job they are doing in putting cleaner water back into the rivers than came out!
This correspondent’s take on Bob’s talk is that while challenges are ahead, in SC we have water and good governance, so the future looks bright.
