The Stormwater Utility Ordinance was adopted in 2014 and amended in 2018 to define the permanent pricing structure. For more information on fees, visit the Stormwater Utility Fee page. In May 2010, an audit was conducted on some county-owned facilities to determine the current state of stormwater management in the county`s facilities and facilities. Landkreis continues to conduct annual inspections of facilities and business visits in the county and municipalities. Annual training is provided to district and municipal directors, managers, monitoring officers and field officers on measures and BMPs to prevent and reduce stormwater pollution through county and municipal activities. These activities included the maintenance of parks and open spaces, maintenance of buildings, maintenance of the fleet, maintenance of the rainwater system, construction of new buildings and soil disturbances. The aim is to reduce pollutants due to land disturbances and construction activity in rainwater. The “pollution prevention”/good domestic economy component aims to reduce pollutants entering the canal system from establishments and businesses in the district and the municipality. The ministry has developed a manual on pollution prevention and the home economy, which is responsible for the operations and maintenance program to reduce the flow of pollutants from all facilities and businesses in the county and municipalities. The applications and forms that need to be submitted can be found in the first two sections below. These forms are used when applying for NPDES coverage for industrial and construction activities related to rainwater discharges. Berkeley County and the cities of Goose Creek and Hanahan have a contractual agreement with Clemson University`s Cooperative Extension Service – Carolina Clear Program to develop and implement the SWMP public engagement/participation element. The Carolina Clear program includes the development of a public participation/participation strategy to address rainwater quality issues.
The county is also an active member of the Ashley Cooper Stormwater Education Consortium (ACSEC). The Post-Construction Stormwater Management component was designed to empower Berkeley County to write on construction sites before structural and non-structural quality (BMPs). The program considers owners responsible for the operation and maintenance of permanent BMPs through a legal document described as an alliance for the ongoing maintenance of Stormwater Systems. Berkeley County also has the authority to conduct construction site inspections and sanction violations. Post-construction PMIs, as well as inspections and enforcement, should reduce mud, opacity and other associated contaminants. Purpose: detection and elimination of illegal releases in Berkeley County and the cities of Goose Creek and Hanahan MS4 and water reception. An illegal spill is any discharge that is not entirely made up of rainwater, with the exception of releases authorized by the CSDHEC objective of reducing pollutants that enter the sewerage system and receive water from the county`s facilities and facilities. The aim is to reduce pollutants in the flow of stormwater by new ones in development and rehabilitation projects. The aim is to provide opportunities for public participation and participation in the rainwater program and associated rainwater activities.
Inspection reports must be maintained by certified erosion sediment prevention and control inspectors throughout the land disturbance process. The authorization requires the county to develop, implement and implement a Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) to reduce pollutant emissions from our MS4 to the maximum (MEP) to protect water quality and meet the corresponding water quality requirements of the Clean Water Act. The current CSDHEC approval came into effect on January 1, 2014. This current authorization replaces the 2006 authorization.
