DHEC teams have proactively assessed all high-hazard (Class 1) and significant-hazard (Class 2), and some low-hazard (Class 3) dams statewide as a precaution after the historic rains and flooding of October 2015. To keep the public informed, the agency has provided updates about confirmed dam breaches and ongoing efforts being taken by the department during and following this disaster event.
To further inform the public, the agency is making available dam inspection reports for confirmed failed dams during the October 2015 flood event and final inspection reports for all Class 1, 2, 3, and S1 dams statewide. All reports listed are from before the 2015 flooding events.
As the state's regulatory agency, DHEC's role is to provide input and assistance to dam owners and operators and to advise on regulatory compliance. The dam owner is responsible for maintaining the structural integrity of their dams. We do not provide engineering services to dam owners, but we do provide compliance assistance.
The agency is currently evaluating the responses to the emergency orders and conducting follow-up site visits to assess if appropriate actions are being taken.
