Working With DSL
The Department of State Lands is organized into three divisions: Land Management, Finance and Administration, and Wetlands and Waterways Conservation. An Assistant Director manages each division. 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 Wetlands and Waterways Conservation Division (WWCD) whose mission is to conserve and protect waters of the state, including wetlands. The division 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. Resource Coordinators are assigned to areas by county, and a manager oversees each region. The wetlands section provides wetland identification and planning services. Wetland Specialists and other staff provide statewide assistance
