MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Wednesday, May 11, 2022) – Berkeley County will be conducting stormwater inventory of the County’s Stormwater Management System to meet the requirements of the County’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. Crews will be traveling to properties around the County beginning Monday, May 16, 2022 and ending August 16, 2022 (weather dependent). Crews will be gathering data about the stormwater system on residents’ properties and their adjacent properties. See map of impacted properties HERE.
The County has contracted with McCormick Taylor’s stormwater data collection team for this project. Their field personnel will be identified by name badges, safety vests and/or other items of identification. Each will carry identification and can provide additional site-specific information if necessary. Field personnel will take measurements and use GPS or survey equipment and cameras to collect the data.
Inventory of the Stormwater Management System is conducted to meet the requirements of the County’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater permit, as required by the Environmental Protection Agency and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. The data collected will include features related to the storm drainage system—including manholes, inlets, pipes, culverts, ponds, channels, and outfalls to creeks and streams throughout the County.
Please allow McCormick Taylor’s field personnel access to stormwater system components on your property for the purpose of this data collection. Berkeley County and McCormick Taylor appreciate your cooperation and understanding. If you have any questions or would like any further information, please contact Berkeley County Stormwater at (843) 719-4195 or .
