Community Resilience: Building Resilience in South Carolina’s Lowcountry through Regional Partnerships

Laura Wilson 0 4791 Article rating: No rating

Frequent flooding is on the rise in Charleston, S.C., forcing the closure of streets in the peninsular city. The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium is part of the Charleston Resilience Network, a public-private partnership designed to coordinate regional efforts to plan for and adapt to increasing flood challenges.

Low Impact Development in Coastal South Carolina: A Planning and Design Guide

South Carolina Sea Grant

Laura Wilson 0 2317 Article rating: No rating

Many coastal decision-makers lack the expertise, guidance, and resources to implement low impact development (LID) techniques for mitigating stormwater impacts. The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium assisted with the development of an LID manual specific to coastal South Carolina that provides guidance on overcoming barriers to implementing best management practices. The project team organized stakeholder workshops, research roundtables, and provided technical assistance with the development of the guide.

South Carolina Guide to Beachfront Property

South Carolina Sea Grant

Laura Wilson 0 2178 Article rating: No rating

Many residents of South Carolina and beyond aspire to live at the beachfront.  To better prepare people seeking beachfront homes (as well as those already enjoying life at the beachfront) regarding specific hazards and regulations, the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, with significant contributions from the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium, has produced the South Carolina Guide to Beachfront Property. Included is information on typical hazards homeowners are likely to face (hurricanes, erosion, flooding, wind, and earthquakes), insurance information, and important state regulations regarding construction and renovation practices. 

Assessing vulnerability to sea level rise in Beaufort County, S.C., using facilitated dialogue and visualization tools

South Carolina Sea Grant

Laura Wilson 0 2383 Article rating: No rating

The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium, in partnership with the Beaufort County Planning Department, Carolinas Integrated Sciences and Assessments program, Social and Environmental Research Institute, and North Carolina Sea Grant, provided a participatory opportunity for Beaufort County to begin preparing for flooding associated with sea level rise. The project team utilized several available tools to engage local stakeholders in the process. A focus group participated in the Vulnerability and Consequences Adaptation Planning Scenarios process to identify local consequences of sea level rise and explore potential adaptation strategies. Sea level rise visualizations developed with data from NOAA’s Digital Coast Sea Level Rise Viewer tool helped stakeholders understand the risks of future coastal flooding due to rising seas. Public workshops were held to get broader input on adaptation strategies. A final report has been compiled for consideration by Beaufort County Council. This project has initiated a process of community learning that will increase the capacity of Beaufort County to adapt to sea level rise.
