No Dumping or Littering
Do not dump or throw anything into the ditches, streams, or lagoons. Dumping in Kiawah’s waterways and impoundments is a violation of the Town’s Municipal Code, Section 15-213. A single plastic garbage bag can clog a spillway gate and cause a chain reaction backup, resulting in flooding over a large area. Even grass clippings and shrubbery trimmings can accumulate, plugging storm drains and gates.
If your property is adjacent to a ditch, stream, or lagoon, please do your part to keep the banks clear of debris. If you see unauthorized dumping anywhere near ditches, streams, or lagoons, contact Town Hall (843) 768-9166.
