Myrtle Beach takes Stormwater management seriously. As in all cities, Stormwater is a major source of pollution and the city makes a great effort in reducing runoff and improving water quality. The MS4 permit dictates the stormwater division and requires public education and outreach, public participation and involvement, Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination, construction site runoff control, post construction runoff control, as well as pollution prevention and good housekeeping.
Within the Stormwater division, there are various crews that each play an integral part in maintaining city infrastructure. The crews consist of an Open Channel Maintenance Crew, a Spray Technician, the Pipe Maintenance Crew, and the Street Sweeping Crew.
