Candidates for Watershed
Commissioner Being Sought
News Release
Voters in the Horse Range Watershed District in Orangeburg County will elect Watershed Commissioners in the November 3, 2020 General Election.
Responsibilities of the Watershed Commissioner include overseeing maintenance and
repairs to the dams and drainage canals, addressing soil and water issues in the watershed, and preventing structures from being located in the flood pool.
Commissioners are elected to four-year terms, must be registered voters, and live in the
watershed district. To be placed on the ballot for election a Statement of Intention of
Candidacy must be filed with the County Election Commission office by noon, August
17, 2020. If the watershed district lies in multiple counties, the Statement of Candidacy form must be filed with the State Election Commission in Columbia.
The purpose of watershed districts is to promote concentrated efforts within the watershed to establish conservation practices including stabilization of critically eroding areas, drainage measures, and flood control. Stabilization of critically eroding
areas includes both mechanical and vegetative conservation practices on gullied areas,
roadsides and other sediment producing areas. Flood control measures include flood
retarding reservoirs, diversions, and drainage and stream-flow improvement. Many
flood control structures are also used for municipal and industrial water supply, fire
protection and recreation.
State law requires candidates that file with the county election commission to complete
ethics forms online. For more information on Ethics forms and filings, contact the
State Ethics Commission at 803.253.4192 or visit their website at
