The South Carolina Office of Resilience is responsible for developing and implementing a Strategic Statewide Resilience and Risk Reduction Plan (Resilience Plan). The Plan identifies 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.
Below you can find the various draft chapters of the Resilience Plan. We welcome public comment and questions – scroll down to find a link to submit comments and questions.

SCOR welcomes comments and questions from the public as they review the Draft Flood Vulnerability Assessment, Draft Climate Chapter and appendices. When submitting feedback for the Vulnerability Assessment and related materials, please enter Resilience Planning in the subject line. Submit feedback here, or email email@example.com.
SCOR continues to seek 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. View the dashboard to see a live report of survey responses collected so far.
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.
