South Carolina classifies our State's waters based on use and establishes water quality standards that protect and maintain those existing and classified uses.
S.C. Regulation 61-68, Water Classifications and Standards lists the uses of our State’s waters and sets the specific water quality standards that need to be met to protect human health and aquatic life.
S.C. Regulation 61-69, Classified Waters provides a listing of all named waterbodies, some specific unnamed waterbodies, their classifications, and locations.
