The Berkeley Charleston Dorchester (BCD) Council of Governments (COG) has scheduled a
Public Meeting to solicit public comment and input concerning the proposed 4 mgd Central
Dorchester Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). Dorchester County is seeking an amendment
to the BCD Water Quality Management Plan for a new 4 mgd Central Dorchester WWTP. The
proposed 4 mgd Central WWTP will require a new NPDES discharge permit. Dorchester County
proposes to divide the permitted wasteload allocation between the Lower and Central
Dorchester WWTPs.
The Public Meeting will be held Monday, July 18, 2022 at 6:30 pm. The meeting will be held in
the Barrett S. Lawrimore Conference Room at the BCDCOG office at 5790 Casper Padgett
Way, North Charleston, SC 29406.

The proposed amendment will be considered for approval by the BCDCOG following public
review. Comments made at the Public Meeting or submitted in writing by August 3, 2022 will be
in the public record for the Plan amendment proposal.
Written comments should be submitted to the BCD Council of Governments, 5790 Casper
Padgett Way, North Charleston, SC 29406. Individuals with questions concerning the proposed
amendment may contact the BCDCOG at (843) 529-0400 between the hours of 9 AM and
