A conflict occurred in the coastal area of South Carolina concerning the plans of the Badische Anilin und Soda Fabrik (BASF) Corporation to locate a chemical plant at Victoria Bluff. The residents of nearby Hilton Head Island opposed the plant on the basis of probable pollution. The opposition was both skillful and effective. BASF finally withdrew all plans for locating their plant in Beaufort County. State officials supported the industry and were unprepared for massive and effective opposition to their normal procedures. Much of their reaction, therefore, was uncoordinated and divisive in its effect. The opposition found its major support with the national government and this interjected elements of federalism.
