The Modern Charleston Harbor Watershed is very different from the on first encountered by English settlers in 1670. Today, population growth and land development threaten the ability of our watershed to function naturally. Local dolphins have among the highest levels of organic pollutants seen globally in marine mammals. Yet despite these sobering facts, our local waterways are an integral part of our Lowcountry lifestyle.
