Regional Consortiums

South Carolina manages stormwater through a permitting process administered by the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). DHEC requires all construction sites of one acre or more, many industrial sites, and all regulated Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) to obtain a stormwater permit. Carolina Clear works with our partnering MS4s to address the first two of six stormwater permit requirements:

  1. Public education and outreach
  2. Public participation and involvement
  3. Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  4. Construction site runoff control
  5. Post-construction site runoff control
  6. Pollution prevention/ good housekeeping

Carolina Clear partners with over 38 MS4 communities across South Carolina to provide quality outreach, education, and public involvement opportunities related to stormwater. If you live in one of the highlighted counties, than you have a Clemson Extension Water Resources Agent providing programming, resources, and technical support for you. Each Water Resources Agent also leads a Consortium of partners who are all working to protect and maintain healthy water resources in our communities. Follow the links below to find out more about the Consortium in your area.
