Hydrology

Mission StatementGreat Falls

The mission of the Hydrology Section is to provide guidance, counsel, and data to the State government and the general public for the beneficial use, conservation, and management of South Carolina's water resources. To that end, the Section maintains a program of hydrologic projects and technical activities aimed at collecting hydrologic, geologic, and water-quality data; monitoring the availability of surface water and ground water; and studying and modeling these resources. The Section is concerned with maintaining a balance among water-supply development, economic growth, and preservation of fish and wildlife habitats.
