DHEC OCRM'S PROPOSED BEACHFRONT JURISDICTIONAL LINES 

Subject: DHEC OCRM'S PROPOSED BEACHFRONT JURISDICTIONAL LINES

I am emailing to give a courtesy notice that OCRM will be releasing proposed beachfront jurisdictional lines tomorrow morning. All information regarding the proposed beachfront jurisdictional lines will be available at http://www.scdhec.gov/beach/BeachfrontJurisdiction/ tomorrow morning.

Interested parties will also be able review the current and proposed jurisdictional lines by launching the S.C. Beachfront Jurisdiction Viewer: https://gis.dhec.sc.gov/shoreline/. The proposed beachfront jurisdictional lines will be viewable tomorrow morning. An accompanying “Line Report” has been prepared to document how the new proposed line positions were established on each beach. The proposed jurisdictional lines and Line Reports will both be available for public review through the South Carolina Beachfront Jurisdiction Viewer and by appointment in DHEC OCRM offices in Beaufort, Charleston and Myrtle Beach. To schedule an appointment, please call:

Beaufort – (843) 846-9400

Charleston – (843) 953-2000

Myrtle Beach – (843) 238-4528

A 30-day public comment period will commence on October 6, 2017, and will close on November 6, 2017. Instructions for submitting public comment are available through the S.C. Beachfront Jurisdiction Viewer and will be provided at each regional public hearing.

Public Hearings will afford the opportunity for the general public to view the proposed state beachfront jurisdictional lines during the open public comment period. Regional Public Hearings are scheduled as follows:

October 23, 2017, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Technical College of Lowcountry Auditorium

Current state beachfront jurisdictional lines will remain in effect until revised lines are established and adopted in final form. As required by statute, DHEC will complete its revision process prior to December 31, 2017. However, proposed jurisdictional lines are subject to the administrative appeals process.

Lastly, we understand that you will more than likely receive an influx of questions regarding the proposed lines. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions and direct your citizens' concerns our way. Please direct specific questions to our Charleston office: 843-953-0200.

MAYOR'S PRESS RELEASE 

Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at noon

PRESS RELEASE:

The Town of Edisto Beach is pleased to announce that as of 2:00 p.m. today we will begin limited access to the beach for these  groups:

Property Owners

Two people for each business

Two people for each property management agency.

Bring your identification and proof of residence, business or property management affiliation.

We ask that these people only bring 1 vehicle per residence, business or property management agency as we work to return to normal life.  Please evaluate your property today and schedule any repairs or contractor visits no earlier than tomorrow, Wednesday, September 13, 2017.  Should conditions dictate any future curfew it will be announced.

It is advisable that you plan to arrive on the beach prior to nightfall due to the difficulty of identifying hazardous obstacles and the establishment of the curfew this evening.  Current conditions will require some preparation and planning for reentry.  These preparations include:  Bring water and non-perishable food for several days until our grocery services can be opened.  A major water leak will require that the water be shut off for several hours this afternoon for repairs.  This will be followed by a boil water advisory.  Conserve water and septic/sewer use.  Restrict flushing unless absolutely necessary.  We are repairing and bringing on line the pump stations and wells.  Golf carts must be unplugged immediately and moved from under the house.  Fire is a danger following any disaster so also please do not plug up any  electrical device that may have been compromised.  We still have standing water in many places as well as some sand on Palmetto Boulevard.  You may have to park in a dry area and walk to your residence.  Signs will be posted for areas that are closed.  Do not enter standing water as it contains hazards.  Bring protective clothing including boots, gloves, insect repellent, long sleeved shirts and pants.

Accessible areas will have garbage pick-up tomorrow.  The Red Cross will have cleaning supplies and water at Bay Creek Park.

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION 

Hurricane Preparedness Information

The first and most important thing anyone should do when facing a hurricane threat is to use common sense.  Always be prepared!  Build an emergency kit.  Some items to include in your kit are:

  • Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation.
  • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food.
  • Medications.
  • Food and water for your pets.
  • Battery powered or hand crank radio and NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both.
  • Flashlight and extra batteries.
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help.
  • Dust mask, to help filter air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place.
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation.
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities.
  • Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food).
  • Local maps

 

Make a family emergency plan.  Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency.

 

After preparing yourself and your family for possible emergencies, the next step to take is to get involved in preparing your community.  We all have a role to play in keeping our hometowns secure from emergencies of all kinds.
