Protecting our natural resources

sThe 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.



Please be advised that our office is currently closed to the public and we will be working from home as much as possible. While we will still be checking emails and phone messages, please be aware that response time will be delayed. All field visits have been suspended unless previously scheduled or approved ahead of time. This is to help protect our neighbors and employees. Bare with us during this transition. Stay safe.
