Edisto River - Endangered American Rivers

The Edisto River is at risk due to unchecked water withdrawals allowed by South Carolina's current regulations.  This video explains what is happening right now with this endangered river.  We need to take action now to save our river.  Watch the video, then follow the links to petition our lawmakers to protect the Edisto River, America’s longest free-flowing blackwater river.

From AmericanRivers.org:  "The Edisto River is America’s longest free-flowing blackwater river. The river is home to gamefish, endangered sturgeon, swallow-tailed kite, and other magnificent fish and wildlife. Families from across the state enjoy the river for fishing, boating, and its renowned scenic beauty. South Carolina’s rivers, when clean and flowing, are worth billions of dollars to the state’s economy.
