Improving SCDOT Project Delivery Through Identifying Potentially Suitable Locations for Mitigation and Standardizing Section 401/404 Permit Application Process

The objective of this research is to decrease the unknown risk in the Department’s Section 404 permitting process by standardizing permit application submittals using a web-based, interactive online tool/program. Additionally, this research will develop methods to identify potential mitigation areas/sites within watersheds and/or to assess and/or grade proposed mitigation sites. The SCDOT expects that findings from this project will improve accountability for risk, and cost allocation for both scheduling and budgeting projects.
