Welcome to 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 is implementing 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.
