Beaufort County holds community meeting to discuss stormwater drainage

BLUFFTON, SC (WCSC) – Beaufort County held a community meeting Wednesday regarding plans to conduct a drainage study in the Alljoy community.

The county is working to create a task force to address issues with stormwater drainage in the Old Town Bluffton neighborhood.

This task force will consist of community representatives who will provide feedback on how best to combat flooding.

Beaufort County Public Services Assistant Director Katie Herrera says having passionate community members join the task force will be invaluable.

“It’s a great place for them to experience what we have to deal with to resolve these situations,” Herrera said. “They give us great input, and it’s also a great way for them to transfer knowledge from the staff level to the community.”

Officials also discussed plans to take action and send crews into the neighborhood to clean storm drains.
