The DHEC-OCRM has direct jurisdiction over any activities along the critical areas in South Carolina’s waterways including the coastal waters, tidelands and beach/dune systems. The critical line is the boundary for these systems and projects involving the critical line require a DHEC-OCRM permit. Before beginning your dock, bulkhead, boat ramp or other alteration, let us perform a Critical Line Survey and complete the process for your permit. Over time, this line can change. Receiving an updated critical line survey is important for purchasing, building upon, improving, or selling property located near a waterway.
