Our mission at DHEC is to protect the public’s health and to prevent harm to the environment. The Ocean Water Quality Monitoring program is an example of how well these two themes work together for the good of all of us.
You can have a wonderful time at South Carolina’s many beautiful beaches knowing DHEC monitors the water and that we are ready to help if you have questions or concerns.
