Officials from the Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, will hold a workshop on proposed changes to the Savannah River Basin Drought Contingency Plan Today in North Augusta, South Carolina.
The two-hour meeting, which begins at 2 p.m., will be held at the City of North Augusta Municipal Building, Palmetto Terrace, located at 100 Georgia Ave., in North Augusta, South Carolina.
At the workshop, the Corps, along with agency partners from the Georgia and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and The Nature Conservancy, will answer questions from the public regarding the proposed changes to the Drought Contingency Plan and the factors that shaped these proposals.
The proposed drought plan would make adjustments to water releases from Savannah District reservoirs. The proposed changes to the Drought Contingency Plan are prompted from findings in the Interim 2 of the Savannah River Basin Comprehensive Study.
The Corps of Engineers will continue to receive public comments on the plan through noon, on Thursday, July 13. Comments can be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
