DeBordieu Colony Fun in the Sun Safety Reminders

As you set out to enjoy some fun on the beach this summer please help us by remembering the following DeBordieu Colony beach rules:

• No lifeguard on duty. Swim at your own risk. Stay away from rocks in water.

• Do not surf fish in populated areas.

• While swimming, avoid areas being fished or waters with lots of bait fish.

• STAY OFF the sand dunes. Dunes are very fragile and provide protection from storm surges.

• No glass. Enjoy any beverage in a plastic or metal container.

• Individuals under the age of 21 are prohibited from consuming alcohol.

• Do not disturb turtle nesting areas. (Nests are protected by federal law.)

• Please fill in any holes dug on the beach before you leave.

• Dogs must be leashed from 9 AM to 7 PM. During other hours, dogs must be under voice control and always kept away from turtle nesting areas.

• Please clean up after pets and dispose of properly. (Pet waste bags are located at several beach accesses.)

• Please remove trash and personal property when you leave. (Items left on the beach overnight will be removed.)

• Fires and fireworks are prohibited on the beach.

Rules comply with SC Law and will be enforced by DeBordieu and Georgetown County Sheriff’s Officers.
