SC does not have any state laws on fencing ponds, it is handled at the county and city level.

It is located in Anderson County, but not in an incorporated town or city.

I don't see any requirements for fencing in the Anderson County design specification for retention ponds. On the attachment, go to section WQ-2 Wet Detention Basins, its around page 40, and there is no mention of a fence requirement.
