Volunteer Monitoring - Water Quality Database Access
Step One: Pick a program  >  
This database houses information from three volunteer water quality monitoring programs being conducted on the Waccamaw River, Murrells Inlet and Surfside Beach. To view the data, use the drop down menu in the upper right hand corner to select a program.

This program will fulfill four needs:
  1. Help local municipalities satisfy NDPES Phase II stormwater program requirements for public involvement and education.
  2. Assist local municipalities with illicit discharge detection.
  3. Increase geographic and temporal coverage of water quality monitoring across the Horry Georgetown county regions. This will assist with development of site specific water quality standards.
  4. Engage in sufficient QA/QC efforts for data to be considered by SC DHEC for inclusion in their biennial 305(b) reports.
