Upon approval of the land disturbance plan, York County will forward all necessary documentation to South Carolina DHEC. SCDHEC will issue the NPDES permit once their review is complete/approved. SCDHEC review time is an estimated 14 business days.
The permittee will then reach out to the Environmental Compliance Inspector listed on their approval letter to schedule the Pre-Construction Meeting. Pre-Construction Meetings can only be scheduled once all approvals are obtained and all necessary documentation is submitted to the York County Development Coordinating Center.
This meeting will occur on-site with the Environmental Compliance Inspector, the financially responsible person, site engineer, and the contractor (who must be licensed in South Carolina through SCLLR). Your preliminary grading permit will be issued at the Pre-Construction Meeting and work to install sediment and erosion control measures can begin.
