Berkeley County to Conduct Field Inspections at Properties around the County for Stormwater Data Collection
MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Tuesday, April 9, 2019)– Berkeley County will be conducting stormwater inventory of the County’s stormwater management system to meet the requirements of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. Crews will be traveling to properties around the County beginning April 15, 2019 and ending June 30, 2019 (weather dependent) to gather data about the stormwater system on and adjacent citizens’ property.
AECOM personnel are part of the stormwater data collection team and were chosen to perform stormwater system data collection for this permit. 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 will use GPS or survey equipment and cameras to collect data.
Inventory of the stormwater management system is conducted to meet the requirements of our National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater permit, as required by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC). 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 AECOM’s field personnel access to stormwater system components on your property for the purpose of data collection. Berkeley County and AECOM 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 .
