Water Withdrawal Regulation in South Carolina
Clemson Extension Program Team
Water use and reporting regulations in South Carolina have gone through substantial changes over time. Current regulations contain permitting, registration, and reporting requirements for significant water withdrawals throughout the state. The relevant regulations vary across sectors and across different sources of water, i.e., surface water and groundwater withdrawals. Understanding how water use is regulated and reported will contribute to the sustainable management of water supplies into the future.
