Watch: CCU students and professors monitor the Waccamaw River

May 7, 2019
Caroline Morton and Andrew Crance take water samples from the Waccamaw River.

The quality of water in the Waccamaw River is an important issue for those who live near it. Coastal Carolina University is involved in monitoring the water in the river, to gauge its health and see if there are changes over time. In recent years, floods have been common on the Waccamaw and that does have an impact on the chemical composition of the water.

May 5-11 is National Hurricane Preparedness Week. Throughout the next several days, we will spotlight efforts taken by our University to lead the charge for change in South Carolina so that all residents can be better informed and better prepared when the next storm strikes.
