Every story in Charleston traces its origins to the water

Water is why we love Charleston. It’s the way we orient ourselves, the way we understand our geography, and our connection to the environment around us. It’s a source of livelihood, enjoyment, and a way of life.

In the face of progress, we have forgotten that connection—and now unchecked bacteria pollution makes many waterways unsafe for swimming, wetland destruction and aggressive development means waters that once filtered now run off dirty and polluted, and failed environmental oversight leaves your waterways vulnerable to polluters. Climate change is making it all worse.

We are at risk forever destroying the very place we love: the very waters that make us. It is up to us to choose differently. It is up to us to lead the way. It is up to us to act. So we stand up, we show up, and we speak up for clean water, because we believe that together we can create a Charleston where our waterways are clean, healthy, and protected.
