Monitoring Pollution in James Island Creek

Storm Warning 10x20 oil on canvas 2016

In 2012 I started getting sick when I swam in James Island Creek. After visiting every local group, Charleston Waterkeeper came to the rescue and began its program of monitoring the water off our dock. Years of sampling data and advocacy now has a TDML (total maximum daily load) goal set by DHEC to reduce the bacteria pollution discharged to James Island Creek and Shem Creek. A citizens committee to educate the Town, City and County is being formed to help meet this goal. Stay tuned for more environmental activist action!
