Keep the Waterways Clean in Beaufort

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 27, 2013

If you live in an apartment in Beaufort, SC you can enjoy a beautiful city, delicious food, amazing culture, and gorgeous shorelines. But it takes a village to keep it all clean and beautiful. That is what Beach Sweep/River Sweep is all about.
Beach Sweep/River Sweep is South Carolina's largest one-day volunteer cleanup event of its kind. Every 3rd Saturday in September, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., thousands of South Carolinians clear beaches, rivers, lakes, marshes, and swamps of debris. The cleanup has taken place annually since 1988 - when Sea Grant first started it. The Sweep takes place in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup. Once the Sweep is over, the Ocean Conservancy tallies all of the debris data. This data helps us learn the sources of litter so we can stop pollution before it starts.

In Beaufort you will always see people enjoying our water ways and shoreline as they fish from Waterfront Park or as they boat down the Intracoastal Waterway. Beaufort is the way it is because of our waterfront, we even celebrate it every summer at the Beaufort Water Festival! It is important to pick up aquatic debris mainly because it is dangerous. Seeing the effects of it first-hand, by participating in the cleanup, makes this even clearer. Litter is a danger to our wildlife, our safety, and our economy.

Beaufort is lucky to have such a vast amount of wonderful aquatic resources. It is home to a diverse wildlife population. The state's economy thrives on the tourism industry. For more information see http://www.scseagrant.org/Content/?cid=49
