Sinkhole report: Drainage project was major factor | Georgetown, South Carolina | Georgetown Times

Local News, Crime and Sports in Georgetown, SC
Sandra Bundy's insight:

"The seven sinkholes that formed in areas between Highmarket Street and Prince Street between July and November 2011 caused the collapse of Parrish Place — which housed several businesses — and damaged many other buildings and homes." 

 

Not suprising since the work was going on at the time the sinkholes formed.  Hopefully the benefits of the drainage project will be worth the final costs and not create more problems.

The residents of the Hidden Woods subdivision in Horry County aren’t happy with a special tax district that had overwhelming support when it wound up on a November 2011 ballot.

Wastewater treatment plant must be fixed | Georgetown, South Carolina | Georgetown Times

Local News,  Georgetown, SC

Sandra Bundy's insight:

Repairing Wastewater Treatment in Georgetown will certainly be a costly endeavor.  Older WWTP's in some locations were built for higher capacity needs that never materialized.  With all the residential developments holding hundreds of vacant lots waiting for homes to be built it will be years before new capacity is needed.
