DHEC Board denies second bulkhead permit

Nancy Vinson of the Coastal Conservation League reports about their progress in protecting Kiawah Island’s sand spit from development:

The DHEC Board did the right thing in denying a second permit for a bulkhead on the river side of Captain Sam’s Spit. They corrected their staff’s inconsistent permit decision (staff had approved it). The DHEC Board denied this smaller bulkhead on the same grounds that the original ½-mile long bulkhead permit was denied. That is, it would interfere with normal inlet migration and have significant cumulative impacts on natural resources. Many thanks to DHEC Board members!
