Protecting our natural resources

The Washington County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD)┬áis 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.
