Storm Drain Marking
Since storm drains lead directly to waterways it is important to educate others that only ‘rain goes down the storm drain.’ Your group can help by marking storm drains in your neighborhood with this simple message. We will provide the supplies needed.

Stormwater Pond Management
Thousands of stormwater ponds have been constructed in South Carolina to manage stormwater. Clemson Extension and Carolina Clear provide information to pond owners (HOAs, residents) and pond managers (management companies) on pond management best practices. Educational efforts include local Healthy Pond Series, regional Stormwater Pond Management Conferences, and statewide Master Pond Manager. Learn more about stormwater pond management HERE, sign up for our E-newsletter to stay informed about upcoming programs or contact your local Extension office.
Stormwater BMP Demonstration Projects
Small-scale residential stormwater best management practices (BMPs) such as bioretention, permeable pavement, rain gardens, vegetated shoreline buffers, downspout planter boxes, rain barrels, and cisterns are regularly installed in collaboration with partnering communities.
Installed projects serve as educational tools to encourage BMP adoption throughout the community.
