Instructions for Completing the Notice or Intent (NOI)
If you are uncertain whether you need to obtain coverage under the NPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Construction
Activities, SCR100000 (CGP), if you cannot access the websites listed on the NOI and instructions, or if you have any other questions, contact
the Stormwater Permitting Section (SWP) at (803) 898-4300 or Coastal Stormwater Permitting Section (CSWP) at (843) 953-0200. Projects located
in the S.C. Coastal Zone (SCCZ—Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Horry, and Jasper counties) are reviewed
by CSWP. Please see the Bureau of Water, Stormwater Permitting website (BOW-SPWS):
http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/swater/ for guidance and additional information regarding the CGP.
Who Must File a NOI:
If S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is the Primary Permittee (Owner/ Operator), this NOI form (Form 2617)
should not be used.
The Owner/ Operator of a single project or larger common plan for development or sale (LCP—see item IV.G of
instructions) that will ultimately disturb 1 acre or more (all counties).
In the SCCZ, the Owner/Operator of a single project or LCP that is located within ½ mile of a coastal receiving
water (CRW) (See item V.A of the instructions) and will ultimately disturb more than 0.5 acres.
• See the BOW-SPWS for “Less Than 1-Acre of Land Disturbance - Non-Coastal Counties” and “Less Than 1-Acre of Land Disturbance
- Coastal Counties”.
Where to File:
See the BOW-SPWS for a current list of the areas that are reviewed by Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) operators and
entities that have delegated review authority. For projects in these areas, the initial submittal should be made to the MS4 operator;
if initial submittal is made to DHEC for projects in these areas, the review process may be delayed. Please contact the appropriate
entity for additional information and requirements; for example, the MS4 operator may require that a different application form be
submitted. If a project crosses jurisdictional boundaries (e.g., sewer line in Greenville County and the city of Mauldin), then
submittals to all appropriate MS4 operators, delegated entities, and DHEC must be coordinated.

J. State and Federal Environmental Permits or Approvals List relevant state and federal permits applied for. See
§122.21(f) of S.C. Regulation 61-9 http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/regs/r61-9.pdf for a list of permits,
approvals, and programs that should be considered. If inaccurate, NPDES coverage may be invalid.
K. Waiver(s) - Identify any waivers requested for your project or construction site. Provide details and required
justifications in the C-SWPPP.
V. Waterbody Information
A. Receiving Waterbody(s) (RWB) Information
1. The Nearest receiving waterbody (RWB) is the nearest Waters of the State (WoS). See definition in §122.2 of
S.C. Regulation 61-9 - http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/regs/r61-9.pdf to which the site’s
stormwater discharges will drain. The nearest RWB must be listed in reference to a named waterbody, if the
RWB is unnamed. For example, if the site’s stormwater discharges drain to a stream on the site, then the
nearest RWB would be the stream. If the stream is not named, then determine the nearest named waterbody
(e.g., Grove Creek) into which the stream will flow and list the nearest RWB as a tributary to the named
waterbody (e.g., Tributary to Grove Creek). Then, the Next Nearest named RWB would be Grove Creek. If the
site’s stormwater discharges drain to multiple waterbodies, then list all such waterbodies; attach additional
sheets, if necessary.
2. Provide the distance, in feet to each receiving waterbody.
3. Provide the classification for each named waterbody. See S.C. Regulation 61-69
(http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/regs/r61-69.pdf) for a list of classifications of waterbodies within
S.C. If the nearest RWB is unnamed, then search the document for the nearest named RWB. If the nearest,
named RWB is not listed, then continue searching the document for the next, named waterbody, proceeding
downstream from the site. For example, a site in Anderson County drains to a tributary of Hornbuckle Creek,
then to Hornbuckle Creek, then to Middle Branch, and then to Brushy Creek/ Big Brushy Creek. First, search
the document for Hornbuckle Creek, then Middle Branch, then Brushy Creek. Because there are 3 listings for
Brushy Creek, the next, named waterbody (Saluda River) must be determined. Note that the county for this
record for Brushy Creek is listed as Pickens because the headwaters of Brushy Creek are in Pickens County.
The classification of the tributary to Hornbuckle Creek is “FW—Freshwaters”.
4. SCCZ Only: Provide the C
oastal Receiving Water (CRW) to which the site’s stormwater discharges will drain.
This distance is used to determine permitting requirements. Coastal Receiving Water is defined as a receiving
water body as defined in the Policies and Procedures of the South Carolina Coastal Zone Management
Program, updated July 1995. This includes all regularly tidally influenced salt and fresh water marsh areas, all
lakes or ponds which are used primarily for public recreation or a public drinking water supply, and other
water bodies within the coastal zone, excluding wetlands, swamps, ditches and stormwater management
ponds which are not contiguous via an outfall or similar structure with a tidal water body.
5. Provide the distance, in feet to the CRW. Classification of RWB is not applicable for CRW.
B. Waters of the U. S. /State Information (See Section 2.6.2 thru 2.6.6 of the CGP)
1. Complete the On the Site?” column for items a-d. If yes is selected for that column, then the next 3 columns
must be completed. If there are other waters of the U.S./ State (WoS) on the site not listed in items a and b
(e.g., stream, river, lake, pond), then list those in item c. Jurisdictional wetlands are under ACOE jurisdiction.
2. Delineation means identification by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) or wetlands consultant. Also, see
the checklist for information about delineation requirements. If there are WoS within 100’ of the disturbed
area that were not delineated/identified, then explain this in the narrative; this includes WoS that are not on
the project site but are within 100’ of the disturbed area. For Direct Critical Area in the SCCZ, delineation
means identification by OCRM or wetlands consultant. OCRM staff may require identification of Direct Critical
Area by OCRM staff as part of its Coastal Zone Consistency review.
3. Impacts - If construction activities will occur in and/ or will impact WoS, then select yes for “Impacts?”
4. Amount of Impacts - List the amount of impacts to WoS. Provide an additional, separate plan sheet that
shows all WoS on the site and the impacted areas. If there are proposed impacts to WoS, please contact
USACOE (866-329-8187) and S.C. DHEC Water Quality Certification, Standards & Wetlands Programs Section
(803-898-4300) to determine additional requirements before submitting this NOI. In the SCCZ, also contact S.C.
DHEC OCRM Wetlands Section (843-953-0200). Please note that it is the Project Owner/ Operator’s
responsibility to ensure that all WoS are shown and identified in the C-SWPPP. See Sections 2.6
6
. If yes for impacts in B.3, describe each impact and activity, and list all permits (e.g., U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers (USACOE) Nationwide Permit, DHEC General Permit) and certifications that have been applied for
or obtained for each impact. Describe the activity(s), whether the impact is permanent or temporary, and
any other relevant information. Provide a copy of all permits and certifications for and correspondence with
USACOE and DHEC for the impacts. Include all plats referenced in the permits or correspondence.
DHEC 2617 (10/2012)
C. S. C. Navigable Waters (SCNW) Information
1. Are SCNW on the site? See http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/navwater.htm for the definition of
SCNW and other information related to SCNW. Or, contact S.C. DHEC Water Quality Certification, Standards
& Wetlands Programs Section at (803) 898-4300 for assistance determining the navigability of the waters on
your site or with questions related to SCNW. If yes to C.1, list the name of the SCNW. If the SCNW is not
named, then provide a description that references the nearest, named waterbody (e.g., tributary to Grove
Creek). If no to C.1, do not complete questions C.2 thru C.3 of this section.
2. If yes to C.1 and construction activities proposed by your project will cross over or occur in, under, or thru the
SCNW, describe SCNW activities (e.g., road crossing, sub-aqueous utility line, temporary or permanent
structures, etc.). This includes temporary and permanent crossings with roads, utility lines, etc.
3. Identify permits providing SCNW Activity(ies) coverages for your site.
a. Identify proposed activities covered under a DHEC General Permit or other DHEC permit. Identify permit
number(s) and corresponding activities covered under each. See the following website for a list of DHEC
General Permits for activities in some SCNW: http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/docs/gp/gp.x
ls.
See the “Notes” column to determine what types of activities are covered under each permit.
b. Identify USACOE 404 Permit or 401 Certification issued for the site. Identify permit number(s) or
certification(s) and corresponding activities covered under each.
c. If applicable, identify the date the SCNW permit was applied for. Identify whether the permit applied for
will cover ALL activities listed in C.2 of some activities listed in C.2. List covered activities.
d. If a SCNW permit has NOT already been applied for or issued for all of the activities in SCNW for this site,
then those activities and conditions can be addressed during the review of the C-SWPPP, and a separate
State Navigable Waters permit is not required. Provide an additional plan sheet with plan and profile
views (drawn to scale) of SCNW and associated activities; include activities description on the plan sheet.
D. Impaired Waterbodies Information (Section 3.2.12)
NOTE: The TMDL, 303(d), and Non-Point Source water quality tool is a mapping system showing detailed information on
WQMS locations, water quality status, and much more. The tool is available at the following website along with instructions
for using the tool: http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/tmdl/.
In the SCCZ, list the nearest upstream and downstream DHEC WQMS(s) and corresponding waterbody(ies).
Additionally, shellfish stations only monitor for Fecal coliform bacteria. Include both the nearest shellfish
monitoring station(s) and full WQMS(s) on the NOI for both upstream and downstream locations when shellfish
monitoring stations are present. If a shellfish monitoring site is not present then you only need to list
the full WQMS(s). When a shellfish monitoring station is present, everything but Fecal coliform bacteria needs
to be assessed at the full WQMS(s). Shellfish monitoring stations begin with numbers and full WQMS(s) begin
with letters.
1. 303(d) Listed Impaired Waterbodies
a. List the nearest SCDHEC Water Quality Monitoring Station(s) to which the site’s construction stormwater
discharges will drain and its corresponding waterbody. See the following website for the most current
303(d) List for Impaired Waters and related information:
http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/tmdl/
. NOTE: DHEC has determined that construction SW
discharges are expected to contain pollutants causing the following impairments: TURBIDITY, BIO
(Macroinvertebrate), TP (Total Phosphorus), TN (Total Nitrogen), Chlorophyll-a, and FC (Fecal coliform) in
Shellfish Harvesting Waters in the SCCZ. Carefully evaluate whether the site’s construction SW discharges
will contain any pollutants causing other impairments not explicitly listed above. You should also consider
previous land uses at the site in answering this question. For example, if the previous land use was a
copper processing facility and the impairment at the nearest WQMS is copper, then you should carefully
evaluate whether the site’s construction SW discharges would contain copper.
b. Identify whether this WQMS is listed on the most current 303(d) List. The 303(d) list is available in Microsoft
Excel and Adobe Reader formats. WQMS locations are available for each watershed at the website
provided in 1.a as well using the TMDL, 303(d), and Non-Point Source water quality tool. To search the
303(d) list to determine whether a WQMS is listed, select “Edit” from the top toolbar of your web browser.
Then, select “Find”. Enter the WQMS exactly as listed on the map and hit enter. If none of the WQMS(s)
are found, then select “No” and proceed to item V.D.2 (TMDL Impaired Waterbodies). If any of the
WQMS(s) are found, then select “Yes” and proceed to item c.
c. If yes for b, list the impairment(s) or pollutants identified as cause(s) of the impairment (see last column
labeled “CAUSE”) for the WQMS(s) and proceed to item d.
d. Identify whether the site’s stormwater discharges contain any pollutants causing the impairment(s). If no
for d, proceed to item V.D.2 (TMDL Impaired Waterbodies). If yes to d and the receiving water is listed on
the most current 303(d) List of Impaired Waters for a sediment or a sediment-related parameter, BIO
(macroinvertebrate), turbidity, Total Phosphorous, Total Nitrogen, Chlorophyll-a, or Fecal coliform in Shellfish
Harvesting Waters in the SCCZ. You must carefully evaluate all selected BMPs and their performance to
ensure that the construction site’s Stormwater discharges will not contribute to or cause a violation of
water quality standards. If yes for d and the disturbed area is less than 25 acres, include an evaluation of
the Best Management Practices (BMPs) proposed for the site as described in Section 3.2.12.B(I) of the
CGP in the C-SWPPP. If yes for d and the disturbed area is greater than or equal to 25 acres, then provide
a written qualitative and quantitative assessment of the BMPs proposed in the C-SWPPP for the site as
DHEC 2617 (10/2012)
described in section 3.2.12.B(II) of the CGP. For more information on this subject, please see the DHEC
publication entitled “Antidegradation for Activities Contributing to NonPoint Source Pollution to Impaired Waters.” This
publication can be downloaded at the following DHEC WEB site www.scdhec.gov/eqc/water/pubs/antidegnps.pdf.
e. If yes to d , list the “USE” support impairment (AL, FISH, REC, SHELLFISH) affected by the pollutant or
impairment listed in item c.
f. If yes for d, will use of the BMPs proposed for your project ensure the stormwater discharges leaving the
site will NOT contribute to or cause further water quality standard violations for the impairment(s) listed in
c? NOTE: If your answer to item f is NO, this site is NOT eligible for coverage under the CGP. You may
contact the Department to determine if an individual permit application is necessary or you may revise
your project to include appropriate Best Management Practices, controls, and procedures to bring your
discharge into compliance
2. TMDL Impaired Waterbodies
a. List the n
earest SCDHEC water quality monitoring station(s) to which the site’s construction stormwater
discharges will drain. List WQMS identified in part V.D.1.a of this table.
b. Identify whether a TMDL is listed for this WQMS. NOTE: See the following website for a list of all WQMS with
Approved S.C. Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs): http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/water/tmdl/.
Select “Approved SC TMDLS”, then select “Sites Covered Under an Approved TMDL and Corresponding
WQ Attainment Status”. Select “Edit” from the top toolbar. Then, select “Find”. Enter the WQMS exactly as
listed and hit enter.
If a WQMS is NOT found, then select “No,” Stop and proceed to Section VI. If a WQMS is found, then
select “Yes” and proceed to item c.
c. If yes for b, identify and list the impairment(s) or pollutants listed as CAUSE(S) of the impairment (see 7th
column labeled “CAUSE”) and proceed to item d. If the WQMS(s) is impaired for more than one
parameter, then the WQMS will be listed multiple times on successive rows.
d. If yes for b, identify whether the standard has been ATTAINED for the impairment(s). NOTE: See the 8th
column labeled USE SUPPORT” to determine if the standard has been attained for each impairment for
each WQMS. “FULLY SUPPORTED” means the standard has been attained for the impairment listed in the
“CAUSE” column. “NOT SUPPORTED” means that the standard has NOT been attained for that impairment.
If no for d (the standard has NOT been attained (NOT SUPPORTED) for all impairments for all WQMS(s)),
proceed to item e. If yes for d (the standard has been attained for all impairments for all WQMS(s)),
proceed to Section VI.
e. Identify whether the site’s stormwater discharges contain any pollutants causing the impairment(s). If no
for e, proceed to Section VI. If yes for e, proceed to f.
f. If yes for e, are your discharges consistent with the assumptions and requirements of the TMDL(s)? NOTE: If
your answer to item f is NO, this site is NOT eligible for coverage under the CGP. You may contact the
Department to confirm that adherence to a C-SWPPP that meets the requirements of the CGP will be consistent with
the TMDL. Where a TMDL has not specified a WLA applicable to construction stormwater discharges, but has not
specifically excluded these discharges, adherence to a C-SWPPP that meets the requirements of the CGP will
generally be assumed to be consistent with the approved TMDL. If the TMDL specifically precludes such discharges,
the site is not eligible for coverage under the CGP.
VI. Signatures and Certifications DO NOT SIGN IN BLACK INK! The NOI must have original signatures unless the
application being submitted to DHEC is one approved by an MS4.
C-SWPPP Preparer - The same registered professional must sign and seal the NOI form, C-SWPPP, calculations,
and supporting documentation.
Primary Permittee - If the Primary Permittee or Project Owner/ Operator is a company, print the name of the
person who is signing the NOI for the Owner/ Operator. A person with signatory authority for the Owner/
Operator must sign the application. The C-SWPPP Preparer cannot sign the application for the Owner/
Operator. The C-SWPPP, all reports, including monthly reports, and any information requested by DHEC must
be prepared under the direction or supervision of a person with signatory authority for the Owner/ Operator
or a duly authorized representative.
