‘Let the Edisto be the Edisto’: Master plan seeks to enhance access to river


In an effort to improve recreational usage of the Edisto River, Orangeburg County is seeking to develop a master plan of the river’s access points within the county.

“There are not many cities that have a river run through it from the aspect I thought we were under utilizing,” Sen. John Matthews said. “It could create a destination point that we consider something to do with it and still not damage the Edisto River.”

“Be authentic and let the Edisto River be the Edisto River,” Matthews said.

The proposed master plan would seek to provide an overview of current public and private river access points through mapping in an effort to improve usage of the Edisto.
