Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the Land Resources Conservation Commission, relating to Amendments to the Dams and Reservoirs Safety Act, designated as Regulation Document Number 1581, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.

Changes to the Dams and Reservoirs Safety Act Regulations are being made to incorporate changes made to the act by the General Assembly during its 1992 session. There are four major changes (1) It requires the owner of a dam or reservoir to notify the commission in writing within 30 days after title to the dam has been transferred from his ownership. (2) It grants to the commission the authority to issue orders on dams that are poorly maintained. (3) It requires the owners of high hazard and significant hazard dams to provide the commission a current emergency action plan in a format specified as an addition to these regulations. (4) It grants to the commission the authority to assess administrative fines (not less than $100 nor more than $1000) for violations.
