Permitting and Compliance

South Carolina has a maze of environmental regulations that require agency approvals before proceeding. Our attorneys have guided many individuals and businesses through this painstaking process. Our lawyers have experience with state agencies such as DHEC and with federal agencies such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. We know how long the process can take and try to make sure things run as efficiently as possible so development can begin.

Acquiring a permit is only half the battle. On-going vigilance is required to make sure operations remain in compliance with environmental regulations on issues including waste management, emissions, air and water quality and runoff. That is where Willoughby & Hoefer can help. Our attorneys regularly work with businesses on compliance matters and inform them of any changes in the law that could have an impact on their operations. We help clients continue to meet their legal obligations involving the Pollution Control Act, Clean Air and Water Acts, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and more.
