Term: 4 years
Mission Statement: The Town of Surfside Beach Stormwater Advisory Committee, an ad hoc committee, is established to protect and improve the Town’s greatest natural aquatic resources—its lakes, waterways and beaches—by fostering public stewardship, recommending Best Management Practices (BMPs), conducting long- and short-range planning and execution of these BMPs to restore and preserve these aquatic resources ensuring they meet the most feasible and achievable water quality goals. The board will also address flood control BMPs, as needed, in conjunction with its long term water quality mission. The committee serves as the Town’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) forum for public participation, public education and outreach, illicit discharge detection and elimination, construction site and post-construction runoff controls, and improved pollution prevention and good housekeeping with all Town operations.
Duties: The function of the Committee is to meet periodically to develop complimentary strategies for managing the town’s stormwater systems through public education, outreach, participation, involvement, pollution prevention and stormwater best practices.
Qualifications: The Town of Surfside Beach Stormwater Committee is appointed by and serves at the pleasure of Town Council but there are no specific qualifications. Town residency is required.
Meeting Schedule: This committee meets the quarterly in January, April, July and October. Education sessions provided periodically. View the town calendar: http://www.surfsidebeach.org/calendar or call 843.913.6333 for upcoming meeting dates.
