The Post reports (http://bit.ly/Wbj7E0) that the Cherokee County health department is attempting to clean up and/or remove hundreds of potential sewage violators from the shores of the 30,200-acre, man-made reservoir.
State Health Officer Dr. Donald Williamson had said his department needed an ordinance establishing procedures for enforcement and the hiring of an enforcement officer to oversee the process.
But the new position has gone unfilled since the ordinance was approved April 9.
County Commissioner Kimball Parker says health officials were given the authority they said they needed to clean up the lake. Now, he said "we want them to step up and do their job."
