Referendum To Dissolve Maple Swamp Watershed Conservation District
(only some precincts will vote on this)
Should the Maple Swamp Watershed Conservation District having met all obligations be dissolved?
Maple Swamp Watershed was formed in 1962 to solve an identified problem in the community flood prevention and drainage. A board of directors who are elected on a nonpartisan basis for a four-year term governs the watershed district. The watershed board was formed to assist in implementing and operating the watershed district. This board has been inactive for many years and serves no useful purpose since this watershed has been completed for over 40 years.
The Dillon Soil and Water conservation District has received petitions from registered voters residing in the watershed district to dissolve the watershed district board. The Conservation District has determined that all obligations of the watershed have been met and followed the policy according to the South Carolina Code of Laws Chapter 48-11-190 for placing this referendum on the ballot to dissolve the watershed district board. The Dillon Soil and Water Conservation District supports this referendum to dissolve the Watershed Board.
Vote YES to dissolve the watershed district.
Vote NO to not dissolve the watershed district.

Yes-732, No-212
