ST. GEORGE, SC (June 15, 2018) – On Thursday, June 14, 2018 Dorchester County worked in tandem with Edisto River Adventures and Keep Dorchester County Beautiful to remove an abandoned boat that was being used as an illegal dumpsite from the Edisto River.

Captain Earl Johnston with Edisto River Adventures towed the abandoned boat to T.W. Messervy Landing where he was met by Ernie Knight and Kip Carter with Dorchester County Fleet Services and Donna Thomas, Dorchester County Litter Control Officer who removed the boat from the river and disposed of it properly.

Dorchester County has been unable to prosecute the illegal dumpsite due to the boat registration numbers being filed off. If anyone has any information about the possible perpetrator is asked to contact Dorchester County Litter Control at (843) 832-0070.
