*The DHEC Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management certifies permits issued from outside agencies that may potentially impact wetlands and other habitats.  Most of these certifications include work such as extending an existing wastewater line (WW) and installing new water supply (WS) lines.  Since a majority of the activities do not impact wide areas, OCRM does not always assemble a quad sheet/site map; however, all site information is available to anyone who requests it.

DHEC-OCRM also issues permits to applicants who are planning on impacting larger areas (i.e. new shopping centers, parking lots, etc) that fall within the Coastal Zone.  These permits are referred to as Stormwater (SW) Permits.  The idea behind a stormwater permit is to ensure that foreign bodies, debris, and other contaminates contained within the construction site, and not allowed to "leak" in the surrounding natural habitat.  All stormwater permits are "digitized" into the DHEC-OCRM system so that they may be projected onto a quad sheet/site map for geographical reference.
