Community Engagement for Environmental Affairs


DHEC's Office of Environmental Affairs believes that conducting meaningful public participation builds trust and credibility. Promoting and protecting South Carolina's environmental resources requires consistent community involvement and ongoing communication among all of our stakeholders.

We use and encourage a combination of approaches to provide meaningful opportunities for engagement:

  • Meetings and Hearings
  • Advisory Committees
  • Citizen Advisory Boards
  • Listening Sessions
  • Feedback Surveys
  • Environmental Justice
  • Public Notices and Public Comments
  • Outreach and Education
  • Availability Sessions
