Onsite Wastewater Program Meetings

The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is proposing to revise three of the onsite wastewater system regulations. In an effort to ensure our valued stakeholders are able to provide input and are informed about the proposed changes, informational meetings are being held across the state. Stakeholders may also submit written comments to David Vaughan, Program Manager, Onsite Wastewater Management, S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control, 2600 Bull Street, Columbia, South Carolina 29201 or via email at To be considered, comments must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on August 28, 2017, the close of the drafting comment period. Proposed revisions include:

  • Regulation 61-56.2: Licensing of Onsite Wastewater Systems Master Contractors

    The revision will refine the applicability of the regulation such that it will apply to onsite wastewater licensed installers as well as master contractors. The revision will create a tiered licensing system with associated tiered fees as well as define continuing education unit (CEU) requirements (with a delayed implementation) for all onsite wastewater system installers.

All interested stakeholders are encouraged to attend. During the meeting, Department staff will discuss proposed changes to all three regulations and will encourage stakeholder input. These meetings will also serve as a time for stakeholders to ask the Department questions about the proposed revisions. Establishing and fostering partnerships with our valued stakeholders is important to us and we value your input.

No registration required to attend. Please see the dates listed below for meeting locations and times.
