This includes over 219 miles of roads divided into four (4) zones. Maintenance and repair is also performed on over 295 miles of paved roads.
The Department maintains most of the overall drainage system in Berkeley County, including major channels in the rural areas and piped and open ditch systems in subdivisions and municipalities.
