Abstract
This executive order by Governor Henry McMaster orders that all dam and reservoir "Owners," as defined in section 49-11- 120(9) of the South Carolina Code of Laws, evaluate the water level in their impoundment to determine if water levels can be safely lowered to accommodate incoming flows, and coordinate releases of water with dam owners and/or property owners downstream as necessary to prevent dam and reservoir failure in the event of heavy rainfall and flooding that is imminent in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
