CDC 24/7 - Protecting People - South Carolina's Success
What is the problem?
South Carolina's large, densely populated coastal area attracts tourists year round. Currently, no one resource informs people about all coastal area issues such as beach conditions and closures.
What did Tracking do?
The South Carolina Tracking Program partnered with state and federal agencies to develop a Coastal Environment Web page. This Web page is now a content area on South Carolina's EPHT Web site.
Improved public health
Residents and visitors to South Carolina's coastal area now have access to information such as:
- Real-time weather,
- Environmental advisories and closures,
- Beach conditions, and
- Marine animal diseases.
This information helps residents and visitors better understand how the state's coastal environment may affect travel plans and health.
