Air pollution is becoming a more significant issue in South Carolina as we are faced with the challenges of complying with more stringent national air quality standards. It is imperative that we meet these standards while still promoting the economic well-being of our state and enhancing the quality of life of our citizens. The Waccamaw Air Quality Coalition was formed to serve as a forum to discuss air quality concerns and ideas for the tri-county region (Georgetown, Horry, Williamsburg Counties).
With the increase in pollution sources and air quality standards becoming more stringent, it is vital to obtain input from stakeholders as we work to address these issues in the most effective manner. The Coalition plans to meet quarterly and is open to any member of the public, local industry, municipality or other agency that has an interest in attending. Those who wish to be notified of upcoming meeting times and dates or those who have suggestions on future agenda items or topics should contact Daniel Newquist (843.546.8502 or email ).
