Winyah Rivers Alliance

Winyah Rivers Alliance watches over the watersheds in the Lower PeeDee Basin, identified by the United States Geologic Survey as Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 030402. This large watershed represents a drainage area of 11,700 square miles and includes the Waccamaw, Lumber-Little PeeDee, Lower PeeDee (including the Sampit), Lynches, and Black Rivers...
Collectively this is referred to as the greater Winyah Bay watershed because all rivers ultimately discharge into Winyah Bay at Georgetown, South Carolina. Winyah Bay is the third largest estuary on the eastern seaboard. Winyah Rivers Alliance hosts the Waccamaw RIVERKEEPER® and Lumber RIVERKEEPER® Programs, licensed by WATERKEEPER® ALLIANCE. The Waccamaw Riverkeeper watches over the 1,640 square mile Waccamaw watershed in North and South Carolina. The Lumber Riverkeeper watches over the 1,750 square mile Lumber watershed in North and South Carolina.
