Ok, Google says Summerville is 41 feet above sea level. Yet, there is a tidal measuring station at Bacon's Bridge. How can that be when a normal high tide is around 4-5 feet? I don't get it.

Tidal waters push the water back up the Ashley river too, the town may be 41' above sea lvl but the creek isn't...

That's amazing considering Summerville is at least 30 miles from the coast.
