Berkeley County crews to begin stormwater inventory

Berkeley County News

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCBD) – If you notice someone walking around your property measuring the ditches and gathering information about stormwater, it may be someone sent by Berkeley County.

Berkeley County is in the process of trying to do a stormwater inventory.

Some of the crews were in the Pinopolis area Monday as they began work. The Inventory of the Stormwater Management System is conducted to meet the requirements of the EPA and DHEC.

The data collected will include features related to the storm drainage system, including manholes, inlets, pipes, culverts, ponds, channels, and outfalls to creeks and streams throughout the county.

Hanahan and Goose Creek are majority priority areas. They are getting an update on much of the older stormwater infrastructure in the area. Much of the people performing the work should be with the county or a contractor with AECOM.

“If you see someone on your property, they would be crew, they should be able to identify themselves—they have a letter with them that shows that they are with the county conducting this work,” said Thurman Simmons with Berkeley County. “They may be out on weekends, be cognizant and aware of that as well.”

The evaluation continues through June 30.
