Winyah Bay Station

The Winyah Bay system-wide monitoring program (SWMP) site is located on the western edge of the natural channel adjacent to Frazier Point Bend, about 6 km down-bay of the confluence of the Black, Pee Dee and Waccamaw rivers and 4 km down-bay of the mouth of the Sampit River. 

The City of Georgetown, located at the mouth of the Sampit River, is the home to a number of heavy industries, including a steel plant, paper mill, chemical plant, as well as a coal fired power plant and a public sewage treatment plant. This monitoring station is well located to represent the collective inputs to Winyah Bay from its anthropogenically-impacted watershed.
