The Wando River is a tidewater river in the coastal area of South Carolina. It begins in the town of Awendaw, Charleston County, and has its mouth at the Cooper River shortly before it flows into Charleston Harbor. The Wando's drainage area is 73,061 acres (295.67 km2). Nearby Drum Island is uninhabited. It is spanned by the bridges crossing the Wando River and Towne creek.[1]
