Abstract : The urban area of Conway, S.C., and adjacent improved agricultural lands are subject to frequent flooding. Inadequate drainage of the tributary areas is also a major problem. This condition is complicated by the fact that the Waccamaw River is a slow draining river. Results of reconnaissance investigations, however, indicated that there are no problems in the Waccamaw River Basin which need, or could be addressed with a basin wide resolution. Problems which would be treatable under programs administered by the Corps of Engineers may be addressed under and within the funding limits of continuing authority programs. The only problems which appear to require treatment at this time are the urban flooding problems near Conway, S.C. Agricultural flooding and drainage problems are very local in nature and do not fall under the purview of Corps authority. This report recommends that the general investigation authorizing this study, be terminated on the basis of preliminary study findings and that the requirements of the resolution be considered satisfied.
