Default Tater farm threatening the Edisto River

NO, Clemson is not building a satellite campus.

Here is a link of what is going on in my neck of the woods. http://www.thestate.com/2013/12/10/3...-concerns.html

http://www.edistofriends.org/

and a link https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bzoe.../preview?pli=1 to the current construction of their irrigation canal . If you have property along the Edisto River , you may want to check into this .

It wouldn't bother me so much if the State didn't have such a conniption every time a private landowner tries to improve wetlands to encourage waterfowl to use them.

These aren't improvements, their actions may very well destroy or do some serious harm to the surrounding wetlands .

The op posted a reply and I gave a response. If you look at my original post , it was created several days earlier than the thread in the " current events" .

If this was taking place on your beloved Wateree, would you not have a concern or would you just blindly follow the status quo ?
We don't have the luxury of a reservoir that can just dump large volumes of water to keep the flow numbers up. All we can do is rely on God to give us rain and hope people use common sense.
As this issue progresses, more and more people along with farmers and other land owners are voicing their displeasure with what is happening along the Edisto.
I honestly thought that member's here would be dismayed at the idea that there could be potential devastation to a wetland which would effect the conditions of hunting and fishing on that river. Instead, you berate me and a few others because you think someone is Anti Farm.

First of all I am of no means anti farm.

To my knowledge The Edisto River is the longest free flowing black river in the country. Just one or two years ago, due to drought conditions, salinity levels at Willtown where in the low 20 ppt (pure saltwater is 35 ppt). During that time many plantations and the refuge where delaying in flooding their fields to prevent killing most plants in the fields. On years of heavy rainfall there may not be an issue but obviously during drought the farm will use more water. I don't know if anyone knows what this decision will do to the S. Edisto River but I am afraid if could change this river system, both flora and fauna, for a long time if not permanently.

So if one wanted to join the conservative non-cock sucking pro farming fraternity, what are the talking points we should be regurgitating?

So you buy into the half-cocked, under-the-table "study" DHEC put into this? I'd be willing to bet it's credibility wouldn't stand up to any type of scientific scrutiny.

Additionally, you support northern industrial ag companies coming down here and using our resources on a considerable scale while offering little to nothing in return?

Please explain your logic in labeling someone who is opposed to an ill-located, poorly studied, industrial operation from some outside entity that is taking a lot yet bringing nothing to the local area, a "liberal, anti farming, cocksucker"...

Industrial ag, huh? I guess any small business that is incorporated or registered as an LLC is a part of big, bad corporate America. It is a large family farm, they have been successful at doing what most American businessowners strive to do and that is grow the business.

E'ry body down stream takes issue with what e'ry body upstream does.

What you will see on this site is that if jabo 3 had said, "Screw all you liberal profarming fags!", most of his minions would've lined up behind him on that stance, too.

In this situation, your government said it must be ok, so shut up and let them suck it up, which to me seems like the more liberal stance on this issue. We have a farm on the north fork so don't call me anti farming. I've read many opinions on this issue, and it seems like each side gleans what they want from the little bit of facts that are available. For the life if me, I can't figure how pulling millions of gallons from the Edisto river is gonna do me or any other south Carolinian any good except if they stand to benefit financially from the farm.
