Ninety Six National Historic Site encompasses over 1,000 acres and its water resources are part of the Saluda River drainage (Santee River system). There is one large impoundment, Star Fort Pond, a small pond (well on its way to filling in as a marsh area), and a number of small streams on the property. The fish inventory of these aquatic habitats produced 433 individuals of 22 species from five families. Common stream and reservoir species were encountered along with three species of conservation concern to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. (Scott, South Carolina DNR, 2006).
