June 2010

REPORT (PDF)     SUMMARY (PDF)

Members of the General Assembly requested that we review DHEC's statutory duties and accountability to the public and local governments in cases of corporate pollution.  We reviewed:

  • Communications to determine compliance with the law and agency policies and to evaluate the effectiveness of the communications.
  • Public participation process to evaluate the effectiveness of the process.
  • Other states' public participation processes to identify possible improvements for DHEC's communications.
