The mission of the Stormwater Management Department is to protect our natural resources and work to ensure that municipal, commercial, and residential activities within our community do not pollute our waterways and resources. The Department was issued a stormwater management permit from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) that requires the city to meet six minimum control measures that are designed to reduce pollution sources and impacts to our waters.  The city accomplishes this through development and implementation of its Stormwater Management Plan.  This comprehensive document includes the requirements to meet the city's stormwater permit.

To help us monitor our city's natural resources more effectively, please report issues, concerns, or illegal dumping into our storm drains by calling us at (803) 441-4246, emailing us at, or making an online service request from our website homepage.
