Stormwater compliance workshop held in the Pee Dee
By Peter Hull
Navigating the maze of construction and post-construction stormwater compliance can be difficult.
Carolina Clear and the Florence/Darlington Stormwater Consortium hosted a summer workshop that addressed stormwater management issues through all phases of construction.
The workshop, tailored to contractors, subcontractors, registered landscape architects, professional engineers and Tier B surveyors, included presentations on permit requirements, best management practices and a question and answer session with a representative from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control.
“Clemson University has been involved with water quality issues for more than 50 years through teaching, research and extension,” said Cal Sawyer, associate director of Clemson’s Center for Watershed Excellence.
“This experience working with a broad cross-section of groups, from engineers and developers to local governments and the general public, provides Clemson with a sound foundation to work with people in the Pee Dee,” Sawyer said.
