Bald eagles in Palmetto Hall wetlands

Hilton Head PSD Commissioner and Palmetto Hall resident Bob Gentzler this week took this photo of a nesting bald eagle in the Palmetto Hall wetlands. The nest is in a tall pine just off the Eighth fairway of the Arthur Hills Course. The wetlands are nourished by Hilton Head PSD reclaimed water, and the diverse wildlife population in the ecosystem is proof of the effectiveness of the reclaimed water program. The PSD annually recycles 1 billion gallons of treated wastewater into reclaimed water, which is then sold to golf courses for irrigation or distributed into four different wetlands, two in Palmetto Hall and two in Hilton Head Plantation.
