Along the Grand Strand, the Intracoastal Waterway is 60 miles of combined creeks, rivers and canals that make us a virtual island. We are touched by the waterway nearly every day. We live along it, drive over it, fish in it and go boating on it. We patronize numerous restaurants, marinas and other businesses located along it. We watch it anxiously every time there is a storm or significant rainfall. But, how much do we really know about it?
