Last week, Charleston was hit with some torrential downpours. Charleston Waterkeeper was out sloshing around through the streets of Charleston, capturing the images of the Lowcountry. With every rain, contaminants such as oil, gasoline and pesticides are washed into our waterways through the many stormdrains throughout our community. Stormwater runoff has been identified as one of the leading causes of water contamination throughout the country.
To show the dramatic difference 24 hours can make in the Lowcountry’s streets, I took a picture of the flooded area the day following the rains.
