The aim of the Journal of South Carolina Water Resources is to provide a forum for articles about the condition of South Carolina's water resources, with the goals of influencing science-based management decisions and heightening awareness of our water resources. This inaugural issue contains manuscripts from the 2012 South Carolina Water Resources Conference (SCWRC). Henceforth, issues published in odd years will feature SCWRC manuscripts. We encourage authors to consider this forum as an outlet to communicate information and results from their work on advancements in water science, policy, management and law pertaining to South Carolina and the Southeast United States. Basic experimental and discovery science, policy analysis, developments in water and environmental law, management issues, as well as case studies are welcome submissions to be considered for publication in the Journal. We anticipate a wide range of readers across our state and region would like to learn about and engage in water resources matters. South Carolina is a water-rich state, and as our population and economy continue to expand, access to reliable and clean water resources is critically important for the resiliency, health and well-being of South Carolinians. Wider knowledge and awareness of the issues is of utmost importance to protect and make the most of our water resources.
