South Carolina Guide to Beachfront Property

This guide for current and future S.C. beachfront property owners was produced by S.C. Dept. of Health and Environmental Control’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management with significant contributions from the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium.

Current and prospective homeowners will learn about common coastal hazards, such as chronic erosion, storm-driven erosion, and flooding. Also included are important state regulations for construction and renovation of properties on the beachfront and criteria for repairing or rebuilding after a storm event.
