Abstract : Shot Pouch Creek watershed is located in the upper coastal plain of South Carolina, in and near the City of Sumter in Sumter County. The drainage area is 7.7 square miles with a total length of 4.5 miles. Shot Pouch Creek is a tributary of Green Swamp and of Swan Lake. The project will reduce flooding in the Shot Pouch Creek area and decrease damages to business establishments, residential property, roads, and bridges. It will not eliminate flooding and this fact should be published annually inorder that the public will be appropriately informed. However, it does provide an adequate outlet for drainage works to be accomplished by local interests and lands that were formerly unusable may be put to some use.
