The Santee Limestone in eastern SC is the northern limit of the Floridan Aquifer. We investigated karst conditions in the vicinity of Santee State Park, SC. There are a few small caves that can be accessed in the area, along with sinkholes, sinking streams and springs typical of karst terrane elsewhere. We conducted a dye trace to determine the discharge point of one of the sinking streams.
