I support the protection of South Carolina's surface waters.

Dear [Decision Maker],

We call on our Governor and legislators to adopt a moratorium barring any new, large, unpermitted agricultural surface water withdrawals from our rivers and streams until such time as the Surface Water Withdrawal Act is amended to truly protect South Carolina's threatened waters.

We must look to the current water allocation crisis in California as a cautionary tale which should prompt South Carolina to avoid the same predicament of pitting agriculture and industry against recreational and ecosystem protection. We must find a balanced plan for the future that protects our rivers and assures enough water for all.
