CAYCE, S.C. (Dec. 30, 2015) – SCE&G today at 1 p.m. will conduct a regularly scheduled test of the warning sirens and strobe lights on the Lower Saluda River. These lights and sirens are used to warn recreational visitors about rising water levels on the river.
Recent heavy rains have caused water levels to rise, and SCE&G advises Lower Saluda River residents and visitors to use caution while nearby or in the river. The Lower Saluda River begins at the Lake Murray Dam and ends where the Saluda and Broad Rivers meet to form the Congaree River.
SCE&G encourages the public to monitor current Lower Saluda River levels online, and to register to receive phone call alerts regarding changing water levels on the river, at this link: https://www.sceg.com/about-us/lower-saluda-river
