The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, is providing SCDOT's response to comments and concerns submitted as a result of the May 16, 2018 Public Notice for the proposed Berlin Myers Parkway, Phase 3 (SAC 2015-0807). These documents constitute that response from SCDOT without the editing or input of the Corps.
These documents are provided without endorsement by the Corps for your review, consideration and, if you deem necessary, further comment. Further comment(s) will be appropriately taken into account by the Corps along with the applicant's information in making required determinations and a final decision on this application. Certain statements within these documents reflect the opinion of SCDOT as applicant on matters for which a determination is still pending by the Corps. For example (without limitation): a statement such as "satisfies the requirements of USACE" is the position of the applicant, rather than the determination of the Corps; analysis and conclusions regarding flooding impacts of the proposed project are those of the applicant, and await further Corps evaluation.
By way of clarification, the Corps notes as follows: we do coordinate with FEMA but do not directly enforce FEMA development criteria within the floodplain; for the Corps' summary of the proposed project and Section 408, see the Proposed Project and the Section 408 Compliance Review sections in P/N SAC 2015-0807.
