ABOUT US

Soil & Water Conservation Districts exist in every county in the United States.

Established after the Dust Bowl of the 1930’s, our goal is to enhance the natural resources of

Jefferson County to ensure the economic safety of agricultural producers in the area. 


Although established by the government, we are not a regulatory

or enforcement agency or an environmental activist group. 


We serve landowners by helping you secure the funding you

need to enhance your land and the water that runs through it.
