A Clemson student from Camden assisted a group of South Carolina homeowners and business owners to know the value of using best management practices (BMPs) to manage stormwater runoff while maintaining water quality at the same time. The group learned this information after attending a floating wetland launch and BMP tour at the Clemson Sandhill Research and Education Center in northeast Columbia. Karen Jackson, a Clemson water resources agent, said the event helped teach people how to maintain water quality without using chemicals.
