looking like we are pointing fingers, it is a fact that the Town does
not own these roads and rights-of-way, and cannot intrude on them
without specific SCDOT permission. 
Nonetheless, we communicate with SCDOT about their
infrastructure, especially when we are experiencing heavy rains and
flooding. During those 17 inches of rain in much less than a month,
the aged stormwater system clearly was not up to the task, causing
the aforementioned problems. Our Town staff met with SCDOT to
discuss the worst areas, and were told SCDOT would have a crew
on the island during the week of August 13 to perform maintenance
work on some of the ditches and culverts that are not properly
flowing. Additionally, the Department was to bring its pipe camera
to assess several sections of pipes and outfalls (pipes that empty into
the marsh) that are not working properly. This will not solve all our
problems, but is a promising part of a solution.
We also encourage any resident with a problem regarding the
SCDOT stormwater system (ditches, culverts, rights of way) to submit
your problem to SCDOT via their website at: bit.ly/SI-ROW.
Don't be shy, but please remember that your report is the first step
in what may be a lengthy process, given SCDOT’s limited resources.
These folks are doing the best they can with the resources the state
affords them.
But if they don’t hear about it, they can’t start the process. And

From the light filled shells in the oil painting, “Gifts From the Sea”
to the drama of the landscape in “Winter’s Song”, Ginny Versteegen
uses her love of the color and light to express her impressions. Her
subjects come to life through her use of oil paint on canvas and linen.
Versteegen can be found about town painting in plein air. Being
a plein air painter allows the artist to gather information for her
paintings in the field.
Versteegen moved to Mt. Pleasant in 2006, after traveling the world
and teaching art. Her work exhibits an international flair for she has
lived abroad and continues to travel and, of course, paint wherever

This year Versteegen traveled cross-country for 2 months attending
the Plein Air Convention in Sante Fe, NM and visiting numerous
National Parks out West. “The world and it’s many wonders are my
inspiration,” says Versteegen. She is a member of Oil Painters of
America, a juried member of Charleston Artist Guild and a member
of the Mt. Pleasant Artist Guild. Her work may be found in many
private and public collections.
