What We Do

The major function of the district is to determine the natural resources needs and implement programs that protect and develop these resources. Programs of the district are developed cooperatively with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Farm Services Agency (FSA), and The Ohio State University (OSU) Extension Service. Additional programming assistance is received from the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (OFSWCD).

The district assists landowners in the Agricultural and Urban Sediment and Pollution Abatement Standards that have been adopted by local, state and federal governments. The application of conservation practices is a cooperative effort between the district and the land users’ voluntary implementation of the recommendations of the district.

The district works to educate the public through school programs, workshops and outreach meetings on conservation practices, soil health, and maintaining healthy watersheds.
