Public Input To Drive Drainage Improvements in Georgetown County

Public Input To Drive Drainage Improvements in Georgetown County

​Stormwater officials are seeking public input on the state of drainage and flooding in the Waccamaw Neck area of Georgetown County, SC. Thomas & Hutton’s GIS and Water Resources departments are working with the County to develop an organized and prioritized Stormwater Master Plan to address stormwater management needs. A public meeting was held on Thursday, July 29th, for residents to begin the process.

Through the power of geothinQ, residents will be able to plot their concerns out on a digital map interface. The user-friendly platform will be available for the next month, users can make geographically referenced reports for various issues (flooding, cave in or sinkhole, damaged or blocked manhole/inlet, damaged or blocked pipe/ditch, erosion), with the option to attach a photo or comment.
