Protecting environment trumps shopping center

My husband and I feel strongly that the request by JAZ Development to exceed Beaufort County's 10 percent impervious surface goal so a Bluffton shopping center can be built should be denied. Research repeatedly points to the unique high salinity characteristics of our Port Royal Sound ecosystem and its role as a major spawning ground. Fresh water, clean or not, is a pollutant that so many are not aware of. Because our marine ecosystem is special, we should not allow outside consultants to dictate its management.
