Building on the success of the biennial South Carolina Water Resources Conference, the first in a series of water resources summits focused on one of the most complex of all natural hazards, drought. Knowing that real progress cannot be made by one person or entity, nearly 100 attendees from diverse professional backgrounds came together to participate in a forum with the purpose of seeking to initiate a collaborative effort to positively impact water resources management in South Carolina.
