Additionally, do you need a permit to build a pond in SC? First of all, you may need a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and/or the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. The factors they will consider will be the size and intended use of the pond, soil type, proximity to wetlands, wells or septic tanks, etc.

If your pond requires a permit, the local regulatory agency will likely require an engineer to design it. If no permit is required, there are expert pond builders in most rural areas that are qualified to design and build a basic farm pond.
Can I make a pond on my property?
A productive pond can be anywhere from a quarter of an acre to a full acre, depending on the size of your property. You need at least three acres of land that will drain into the pond for each acre-foot of pond volume. An acre-foot is the volume of water contained in an acre of water that's one-foot deep.
