Draft of May River plan posted to website

The latest draft of the May River Watershed Action Plan has been posted to the town of Bluffton's website for public comment and review.

The plan is being developed by the town to try to restore the river's water quality to shellfish harvesting standards. The draft is 95 percent complete, according to Ron Bullman, town stormwater engineer. It won't be finished until after the public review period, which ends Aug. 17, Bullman said. Some appendices and figures for the plan will be published later this week on the town's website.
