In August of 1994, the Reef Ball Group's Reefs Around The Nation Program (sm) provided the DNR with 14 mold systems to produce two test reefs of 150 modules each to evaluate their potential in SC waters. One set was placed off Charleston and was built by DNR staff members. A second set for Hilton Head Island was built by the Hilton Head Sport Fishing Association. In June of 1995, the DNR ordered from Reef Ball.an additional 800 modules for four new reef sites. The Parks and Recreation Department ordered an additional 200 Pallet Balls to be used by a county pier to enhance fishing. Both projects were completed in September, 1995.
