Santee Cooper places artificial reefs in lakes Marion and Moultrie

June 19, 2014

Santee Cooper is helping enhance fish habitats on lakes Marion and Moultrie by placing artificial reefs made of concrete into the two reservoirs. The artificial reefs, also referred to as fish attractors, will help develop new habitats for the lakes' fish species.

Beginning in late May, Santee Cooper has used a barge and forklift to place more than 90 concrete boxes in lakes Marion and Moultrie. The concrete boxes, donated by General Precast Manufacturing Co. in Moncks Corner, range in weight from 2,300 to 4,600 pounds and contain holes to make it easier for fish to swim through and make their homes. There are plans to add additional artificial reefs in the lakes in the future.
