The Stormwater Division handles critical infrastructure throughout the City. Keeping our stormwater system in good repair and addressing federal and state mandates regarding stormwater management is essential for both commerce and neighborhoods to function. Protecting City stormwater infrastructure protects investments and vital natural resources.
This program is managed through a City-wide stormwater fee. This fee is assessed on all residential and commercial properties for the purpose of funding vital infrastructure programs. Please visit our FAQs to the left of the page for further information.
Note: the City does not own or maintain any drainage structures outside of City-owned rights-of-way. Streams and waterways are under the jurisdiction of state and federal agencies (e.g. SCDHEC and the Army Corps of Engineers), and outside of the City's purview.
