Protecting our natural resources

Washington County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is a unique unit of local government that was founded in 1945. Our mission is to assist agricultural producers, rural landowners and municipalities with the management, conservation and best use of our natural resources. Our highest priorities are to protect the County’s soil and water resources while maintaining the viability of agriculture as a preferred land use.



 Water Testing Labs List & Dept. of Health Information Sheet

While the Washington County SWCD is very interested in water quality, we are not certified to test water and do not have a water testing lab.  If a person has concerns regarding their water source(s), we have a list of NYS Certified Labs for water testing or we recommend they contact the Department of Health regarding specific water quality concerns.  Please see the fact sheet with contact information on bottom of second page for Dept. of Health.
