"South Carolina is developing land at four times the rate of its population growth, with almost all the development in cities and along interstates. A study released Thursday found that the amount of developed land in South Carolina increased 60 percent from 1983 to 1998. The state's population increased 15 percent in the same period. The Department of Natural Resources undertook the study to document urban sprawl."
