Community Engagement

Community Engagement & COVID-19

DHEC’s Office of Environmental Affairs will continue to offer opportunities that encourage meaningful stakeholder engagement while following recommended guidance to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Promoting and protecting South Carolina's environmental resources requires consistent community involvement and ongoing communication among all of our stakeholders.

 

Meaningful Community Engagement

We also use collaborative, problem-solving strategies and partnerships to ensure citizens in overburdened communities are involved in our decision-making processes.  We emphasize the importance of developing and strengthening relationships with environmental justice stakeholders.  

We use and encourage a combination of approaches to provide meaningful opportunities for engagement including:
