By SARITA CHOUREY

 

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina Supreme Court will hear arguments today over whether to invalidate permits a South Carolina agency awarded in November to aid the Savannah harbor deepening.

 

A spokesman for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the agency that received the permits, has declined to comment on the suit, noting it involves a conflict within South Carolina entities. A spokesman for the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) would not address the challenge, citing its pending status.

 

The Southern Environmental Law Center represents the Savannah Riverkeeper, the S.C. Coastal Conservation League, the S.C. Wildlife Federation and the Conservation Voters of S.C. The respondent is listed as DHEC. The question of DHEC’s jurisdiction is also being challenged by the S.C. Savannah River Maritime Commission.

 

At the center of today’s lawsuit is the environmental agency staff’s decision to reverse an initial denial of permits and the DHEC board’s hasty vote to accept that new decision on Nov. 10. The lawsuit says DHEC’s award of key permits, including a Section 401 water quality certification, infringed on the authority of the S.C. Savannah River Maritime Commission.

 

That commission was created by the S.C. Legislature in 2007 to champion South Carolina’s interests in a variety of areas, including dredging matters.

 

The environmental groups also argue that the Georgia Ports Authority’s $653 million deepening project — undertaken in preparation for larger ships traveling through an expanded Panama Canal in 2014 — will destroy marshland, expose the environment to toxic cadmium and cause saltwater intrusion upstream, among other harmful environmental effects.

 

But in April the corps issued its environmental findings after 14 years of study that concluded the project was economically and environmentally sound.

 

As recently as Thursday, DHEC was asked to revisit Georgia’s harbor expansion, a project that has drawn intense hostility from South Carolina legislators who say it will harm the state’s competitive standing.

 

At that time, the board voted not to hear an appeal sought by the corps and the Georgia Ports Authority, which they had submitted in response to the Maritime Commission’s May 8 attempts to impose terms and conditions on the project. Among the commission’s orders was a call for limiting Georgia’s harbor deepening to 45 feet instead of the 47-foot depth recommended by the corps.

 

In its decision last week, DHEC board members acknowledged that the question of jurisdiction was in dispute.

 

Uncertainty over which agency wields authority over the Savannah River cropped up in March, too, during a meeting of the Joint Project Office board for the proposed $5 billion Jasper Ocean Terminal. At that time two of South Carolina’s three appointees to the six-man Ga.-S.C. board abstained from a vote after raising concerns that it encroached upon the Maritime Commission’s territory.

 

In that vote, which passed 4-0, officials were deciding how to spread some 13.4 million cubic yards of dredge materials from the harbor expansion — in the event that the project goes forward — in order to use it as site preparation for the Jasper port.
