Because incorrectly installed septic systems can harm water quality and make people sick, South Carolina law requires site approvals and permits for all septic systems. If you are planning to build a home or place a manufactured home on property not served by a public or community sewer system, you must first obtain DHEC's approval and a permit to install a septic system. Without this permit, your county will not be able to issue you a building permit.
Please be aware of how the weather affects our schedules. If the soil is too wet, we may not be able to do a proper evaluation. Soil evaluations may have to be delayed until the soil has had time to dry out which adds to the time it takes to issue your permit. This is similar to farmers having to delay planting or harvesting their crops. If there has been too much rain, they can't get into the field with their equipment to conduct their work.
To file a septic system application, download and complete an onsite wastewater application and submit it to your local Environmental Affairs Office. Once your application has been received, office personnel will contact you to confirm receipt of your application and to discuss payment options.
If you have any questions, please call your local Environmental Affairs Office for assistance. Once your site address has been entered, a black dot will appear on the map identifying your site. To determine if your site is above or below the Fall Line, zoom out until you see the black line running across the state. If your site is located above the black line, backhoe pits will be required to conduct a soil evaluation prior to issuing a permit.
If your site is located below the black line, backhoe pits are not required but can be utilized to expedite your permitting process. If you have questions, please contact the Onsite Wastewater Program at for clarification.
Once an application has been submitted and it is determined that your site is above the Fall Line, an onsite wastewater inspector will contact you to schedule a site and soil evaluation. You, the applicant, are responsible for contacting an operator to dig pits on the proposed site. Backhoe pits can be dug utilizing any piece of machinery as long as the pits are dug as outlined in Guidelines for Onsite Wastewater System Soil Evaluation.

If the inspector approves your site for a traditional septic system, they will issue you a Permit to Construct. If the inspector does not approve the permit, they will discuss possible alternatives with you. Test pits may be requested by the Department in cases where the evaluator encounters an obstruction during initial site evaluation or when an area is known to require test pits due to soil characteristics. Soil conditions requiring test pits are most commonly found in the midlands and upstate regions of the state.
Note: Test pits may not be an option in coastal and sandy areas of the state. Speak with your local office staff for more specific guidance for your area. Step 4: Once you have been issued a Permit to Construct, you may contact a d onsite wastewater system installer to install your septic system.
Step 5: Before completing the installation of the septic system, the installer must contact DHEC to schedule a time for the inspection of the septic system before it is covered. If a DHEC inspector does not arrive within 30 minutes of the scheduled time, a d installer has the option to proceed with a self-inspection of the installation.
