Incentive/Summary This legislation enacts a state management
This legislation enacts a state management program to oversee water and land use and development in South Carolina's coastal zone. Under the program, the Department of Health and Environmental Control is authorized to enact regulations to protect coastal zones. Permits are required for many activities which may disrupt land or water in these areas, including dredging, the construction of pipelines, and other development. The South Carolina Coastal Management Program was established under the guidelines of the national Coastal Zone Management Act (1972) as a state-federal partnership to comprehensively manage coastal resources. It was authorized in 1977 under SC’s Coastal Tidelands and Wetlands Act (CTWA) with the goal of achieving balance between the appropriate use, development, and conservation of coastal resources in the best interest of all citizens of the state. DHEC's Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (DHEC-OCRM) is the designated state coastal management agency and is responsible for the implementation of the state’s Coastal Management Program. Implementation includes the direct regulation of impacts to coastal resources within the critical areas of the state including coastal waters, tidelands, beaches and beach dune systems; and indirect certification authority over direct federal actions and federal and state permit decisions within the eight coastal counties. The SC Coastal Management Program also includes the direct permitting of stormwater and land disturbances in the coastal zone in coordination with the state-wide stormwater permitting program.
