The South Carolina Office of Resilience is responsible for developing and implementing a Strategic Statewide Resilience and Risk Reduction Plan. The Plan will identify major flood risks around the state and potential losses that could occur as a result of extreme weather events. The Plan will provide strategies for local governments to implement resilience into their communities in order to mitigate potential flood risks.
SCOR seeks and welcomes public input as resilience planning gets underway. Opportunities for public input will be listed here throughout the process.
The resilience planning team has compiled a repository of resilience resources for use by local municipalities and other entities involved in resilience planning. Find those resources here.
Survey: tell us about your experience with flooding
Currently, SCOR is seeking input from citizens around the state about their experiences with flooding in order to better inform the Resilience Plan. Citizens are encouraged to complete this survey to share details about flooding in their areas, and to encourage their communities to complete the survey as well.
A printable flyer with links to and information about the survey can be accessed below to hang anywhere in your community.
View the dashboard to see a live report of survey responses collected so far.
Beginning in February 2022, SCOR is asking you to send us your questions about the resilience planning process. Want to know what the implementation of resilience measures in your community could look like? Curious about the different types of flooding? Interested in learning more about green vs. gray infrastructure projects? We want to hear from you. After receiving your questions, the resilience planning team will post monthly video responses answering your questions and discussing resilience topics. These videos will be available to view on our website and social media pages.
Virtual "Office Hours"
In addition to video Q&A, the team will also hold weekly virtual office hours, accessible via Zoom or by phone, for more in depth discussion about your questions, comments, or concerns about resilience in South Carolina. The schedule and information on how to join is listed below.
