Constructio​n Stormwater

EPA and DHEC have delegated the authority/responsibility to the City of Florence to regulate construction stormwater discharges.

As a result, the City of Florence is classified as a Small MS4.

One of the components of this designation is the permitting of construction activities inside the City of Florence.

Please contact the City of Florence Planning & Development Department and the City of Florence Engineering Division at (843)665-2047 to begin the planning and permitting process of your proposed development. You can visit both departments in person on the 2nd floor of the City of Florence City Center at 324 W. Evans St., Florence, SC 29501.

Another requirement resulting from our MS4 designation is the responsibility for inspecting active construction sites for stormwater compliance.  In addition to our oversight inspections, contractors are required to conduct weekly inspections of their projects.  Click the following link to see our recommended Owner Inspection Report
