County pushing for a NEW Well Permit on a 30 year Well .....permit approved by DHEC in 1988


#1

Has anyone dealt with a Grandfathered mobile home part WELL that had been in place for exactly 30 YEARS…and then have DHEC try to Force one to Contract with them in the form of a Redundant Permit, because you added more another home (making the total 13 mh’s) ?

The typical threshold is 15 connections. At 15 connections the system is now a community water system by federal epa definitions. The standards for community wells are typically much stronger.
Questions:
Was the well constructed to 1988 standards? If not grandfathering does not apply.
Do they want a new well or just a permit to operate the existing well? Ask for the administrative rule or statute that requires this permit.

Yes, I still have the original permit from 1988. They are trying to push their “New GUIDELINE Crap” to raise REVENUE.
They now will require a $275 a year permit to CONTRACT with THE DHEC CORPORATION.
