Soil & Water Conservation District

Soil and Water Conservation Districts:

Each county in Indiana has a Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD). SWCDs are subdivisions of state government led by a 5-member board of supervisors. SWCDs identify and address soil and water conservation needs in their counties. SWCDs address issues such as water quality improvement in agricultural and urban areas, forestry, wildlife habitat enhancement, water management, land use change, and natural resource education. SWCDs boundaries are the same as the county's boundaries.
