When: March 22, 10:30 a.m.

Who:  Berkeley County Supervisor Dan Davis

           Berkeley County Water and Sanitation Director Colin Martin

           Santee Cooper President and CEO Lonnie Carter

Where: Berkeley County Water and Sanitation Operations Center

             212 Oakley Plantation Drive

             Moncks Corner, SC

Tours of the Berkeley Green Power Generating Station will be available following the program; bus transportation to and from the generating station will be provided.
