Welcome to your October 2023 Keeper’s Report!

For those of you who have experienced Revel on the River, you know it is a joyful celebration of your waterways spanning the generations. There is something for everyone to enjoy and the love of swimming, fishing, surfing and the moments of calm on the water is what brings us together and motivates us to continue the fight for clean water.

Thank you for the support and remember that 100% of your contribution to this amazing event goes to protect and restore Charleston’s waterways for future generations. 

And, boy have we been busy protecting and restoring your waterways and very pleased to share the latest below.
