Welcome to Georgetown County Stormwater Management


About Georgetown County Stormwater

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has established regulations for protecting our waters from pollutants. In response to these regulations, Georgetown County has implemented a Stormwater Management Program which is consistent with the Federal Clean Water Act and South Carolina Pollution Control Act.

Mission: Protect and improve the quality of life of all the citizens of Georgetown County, South Carolina, and surrounding communities. Provide for the collection, and conveyance of stormwater runoff in accordance with all federal, state and local regulations in the safest, most efficient, and cost effective manner possible.

Georgetown County Stormwater is a Division within The Department of Public Services. This Division seeks a balance between the needs of a growing community and the needs of the environment and its citizens. The intent of Georgetown County Stormwater Division is to develop and encourage "No Adverse Impact" Standards, while promoting sensible growth on the available land and minimizing the impacts to the environment and citizens.

Stormwater related problems, when left uncontrolled, could lead to damage of property and threats to public health safety, welfare, the environment, and ultimately to loss of property or life.

Stormwater Management Plan:

Georgetown County's Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) is posted here for community review. This plan allows the County to address SCDHEC's MS4 permit requirements in a way that allows the County the flexibility to implement and make changes to the plan over time. Please review this plan at your leisure and learn how the County is collecting data, inspecting outfalls, tracking illicit discharges, and reviewing site plans, etc., all to help prevent stormwater pollution.
