AERMOD is a steady-state plume model used to predict atmospheric pollutant concentrations. Two input datasets are part of the regulatory modeling system: meteorological data and elevation. To expedite the modeling process, the application allows users to interactively download the datasets by county.
AIR MONITORING DATA
The South Carolina Air Monitoring Network provides information on SCDHEC's current and historical air monitoring stations, information on pollutants sampled, objectives and historical concentrations. Links to explanation of standards are provided.
The Beach Advisory application provides up-to-date information on advisories. If a high bacteria count is found an advisory is issued for that portion of beach. Advisories do not mean that the beach is closed. Wading, fishing, and shell collecting do not pose a risk. Advisories are lifted when sample results fall below the acceptable limit.
DISCOVER YOUR COMMUNITY
Discover Your Community provides information on health care facilities and restaurant inspections. Health care facilities include hospice, community residential care and nursing homes. Searches are available to determine if a health care facility is within a hurricane storm surge area. Restaurants can be searched by zip code and their sanitation/food safety scores (Grade A, B or C).
ENVIRONMENTAL PUBLIC HEALTH TRACKING (EPHT)
Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) is a nationally integrated environmental and public health information system. It is designed to provide data and information for better decision making to improve health as well as taking care of the environment. Track it! Map it! Use it !
SC COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT NETWORK (SCAN)
SCAN provides interactive, real-time access to public health statistics online. Users can tailor information to their specific needs from one of the available datasets and produce tables, maps, charts, trend-lines or bar charts.
STORMWATER NOTICE OF INTENT (NOI)
The Stormwater NOI application is designed to assist applicants in procuring information required to obtain NPDES coverage under SC's Construction General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from large and small construction activities.
The Swimming Advisories application displays the current advisory locations. SCDHEC tests the water quality of rivers, lakes and streams across the state. Tests sometimes show high amounts of bacteria for certain locations. At sites where people commonly swim, DHEC installs a swimming advisory sign.
