Colleton Co. residents continue to weigh in on proposed coal ash landfill

WALTERBORO, SC (WCSC) - Later this week, the Colleton County zoning board is expected to make a final decision on whether to allow SCE&G to go ahead with a coal ash landfill near Walterboro.

A community forum was held Monday night to give the power company another chance to address concerns from residents.

SCE&G wants to build a 200-acre dumping site, but opponents say it's in a poor place too close to the headwaters of the ace basin.

There is a possibility the zoning board's decision could be delayed until March to allow for more public comment.
