Rain water flows into a drainage pipe on Tuesday afternoon at the Broad River Boat Landing in Beaufort.  University of South Carolina Beaufort's Department of Natural Sciences was recently awarded a $42,910 award to help fund a research project to monitor how rainfall changes the salinity of the upper part of May River and the impact that the storm water can have on the marine life such as oysters, larval fish and shrimp.  The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources will be monitoring other rivers north of Beaufort County.
