CLEMSON, S.C. -

Heavy rain has delayed work on cleaning up the South Carolina Botanical Garden in Clemson after it was damaged by a storm last month.

The Greenville News reported that director Patrick McMillan said his crew has been working to pick up debris and clean up silt so rebuilding can begin.

McMillan said much of the work since the July storm has been flooded again.

He says the July 13 storm caused more than $200,000 in infrastructure damage along the Natural Heritage Garden trail. He says repairing all the damage from the rain could total $500,000.

Jeffrey Taylor with the National Weather Service office in Greer says the Clemson area has received more than 54 inches of rain this year. The normal amount is about 44 inches.
