The 50th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act is October 18, 2022. The Clean Water Act is a federal policy to prevent, reduce, and eliminate pollution in our waterways. Since 1972, the Act has restricted pollution entering our waterways to ensure fishable, swimmable, and drinkable water. After 50 years, we have much to celebrate. But we will also continue to fight to protect clean water in our watershed for another 50 years and beyond! We hope you will join us in celebrating this landmark event in Clean Water history!
As we count down to the anniversary over the 5 months preceding the 50th Anniversary we will be hosting events throughout the greater Winyah Bay watershed including paddles, cleanups, and more! We will also be hosting interactive competitions with our 5250ACTions Challenge, Paddle 5k, and more!
Be sure to stay tuned for upcoming events and information on how you can get involved in protecting clean water!
