Berkeley Electric owns and maintains the street lights on Seabrook Island; if one needs attention for any reason, all you need to do is contact them at the link (below). They need the closest street address to the problem streetlight.

Backyard Buffers

As Seabrookers are preparing for the spring season and maintaining their yards they should be mindful of maintaining a buffer area between their yard and any adjacent water bodies. The attached piece of literature provides an informative set of guidelines and recommendations for maintaining backyard buffers. These guidelines were produced by SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) as an educational tool for stormwater quality . Please keep them in mind during your planting and clearing activities this spring and make sure that your landscaper has a copy as well!
