SCDHEC-OCRM General Permits

To comply with applicable state law, applicants who believe they can proceed under a streamlined state-level general permit must submit the following information:

  1. A completed SCDHEC-OCRM general permit application form;
  2. Proof that both adjacent property owners and the local governmental body with jurisdiction over the property have been notified of the proposed activity by certified mail (certified mail receipts must be provided to OCRM at the time of submission) and as otherwise required;
  3. Proof of publication of required public notices in a newspaper published in the county where the proposed activity is taking place must be forwarded to the OCRM office processing the application;
  4. A brief description of the proposed work, its purpose, and intended use. A drawing or plat might be required in addition to a description of the method of construction, and identification of materials and equipment to be used might also be required;
  5. A permit cannot be issued until the 15-day comment period has passed;
  6. OCRM can provide information on activities eligible for General Permits.
