Inspection Reports (Pre-Flood)

Below are inspection reports for Class 1, 2, 3, and S1 dams in South Carolina. The dams are organized by Environmental Quality Control office area and classification. All reports listed are from before the 2015 flooding events.

What the dam classifications mean:
C1 – Failure may cause loss of life or serious damage to infrastructure.
C2 – Failure will not likely cause loss of life but may damage infrastructure.
C3 – Failure may cause limited property damage.
S1 – S1 dams don't meet the size criteria to be classified as a C1, 2, or 3, but are still are deemed highly significant due to the potential effects downstream in the event of failure or improper operation of the dam.

The C3 files may contain information not found in the other Class categories as C3 dams underwent a special evaluation beginning in 2011 to assess their classification status.
