Coastal Environmental Quality in South Carolina

Coastal environmental quality deals with water quality, air quality, plastics pollution, contaminants, and other environmental issues that can affect the health of South Carolina’s residents and visitors.

The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium works closely with state natural resource managers, community groups, scientists, universities, and decision-makers to improve our coastal environmental quality by providing them with science-based information and tools.
