Program Requirements and Regulations
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) Program, passed regulations and requirements for managing potential contamination of storm water. Within South Carolina, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) has developed regulations for implementing and complying with the federal stormwater requirements. Entities responsible for stormwater control within their political and/or geographical jurisdiction (such as cities, counties and/or special districts* are required to obtain and comply with the requirements of a NPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges through the SC DHEC.

The City of Anderson is the owner/operator of a Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (SMS4), and as such, must take the lead role in stormwater management within the City.
