SC/NC Boundary Program

2. Who was responsible for re-establishing the state line?

The South Carolina Geodetic Survey and North Carolina Geodetic Survey were responsible for technically re-establishing the boundary. A NC-SC Joint Boundary Commission was created to oversee and approve the technical work, and the efforts to reduce or eliminate impacts on property owners affected by the re-established boundary. The commission comprised members from the South and North Carolina Geodetic Surveys, senators and representatives from both states’ legislatures, representatives from both states’ Attorney General Offices, and state agency personnel.
