Abstract
The Western Capacity Use Area (Western Area), which includes the whole of Aiken County, Allendale County, Bamberg County, Barnwell County, Calhoun County, Orangeburg County, and the portion of Lexington County that lies south of the fall line, was the fifth of six currently designated areas of South Carolina’s Coastal Plain to be incorporated into the Capacity Use Program. In the parts of the state designated as a Capacity Use Area, a groundwater withdrawer is defined as, “a person withdrawing groundwater in excess of three million gallons during any one month from a single well or from multiple wells under common ownership within a one-mile radius from any one existing or proposed well” (Groundwater Use and Reporting Act, 2000).
