The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) initiated a major new collaborative coastal monitoring program in 1999 entitled the South Carolina Estuarine and Coastal Assessment Program (SCECAP). The program also involves several federal partners, including the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Ocean Service (NOAA-NOS) Charleston Laboratory, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The goal of SCECAP is to monitor the condition of the state's estuarine habitats and provide periodic reports to both coastal managers and the public. The program collects multiple measures of water quality, sediment quality, and biological condition at a large number of sites throughout the states coastal zone each year and integrates those measures into an overall assessment of estuarine habitat condition at each site and the entire coastal zone.
