Today the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control found that the permit for seismic exploration for oil off the SC coast submitted by WesternGeco is inconsistent with the state’s Coastal Zone Management Program. Read DHEC’s letter here.
On June 8th the SC Small Business Chamber submitted our comments in opposition to the permit. We were one of 1720 public comments opposed to the permit. Read the Small Business Chamber’s letter here.
Our thanks to DHEC for representing the overwhelming voice of opposition of our state leaders, businesses, environmental and public interest organizations and the general public.
