Working With DSL
The Department of State Lands is organized into three programs: Aquatic Resouce Management, Business Operations and Support Services, and Common School Fund Property. An Assistant Director manages each program. In addition, DSL oversees the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve in Charleston in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).  
The removal-fill permit program is administered by the Aquatic Resource Managament Program (ARM) whose mission is to conserve and protect waters of the state, including wetlands. The program provides a variety of services, including wetland determinations, wetland delineation report review, responding to wetland land use notices, conducting pre-application meetings, and providing assistance for permit application processing.
The operations section implements the permit program, and is organized into northern and southern regions. Aquatic Resource Coordinators are assigned to areas by county. The Aquatic Resource Management program provides wetland identification and planning services. Jurisdiction Coordinators and other staff provide statewide assistance.
