WMBF News – North Myrtle Watershed

Bacteria in the watershed surrounding Cherry Grove has restricted shellfish harvesting on and off in the area for the past several years, but that could finally change after the city develops a watershed management plan. Kevin Blayton, public works director for North Myrtle Beach, said the city has been trying to take a closer look at the bacteria sources in the watershed for the past ten years, but this is the first grant to come through for the city to be able to actually carry out that idea.
