Soil & Water Conservation Districts are
political subdivisions of state government.
There are 96 of them in North Carolina, covering the state’s 100
counties. They approve soil and water conservation plans, identify and
plan local resource conservation work and coordinate the conservation
efforts of federal and state agencies within the district.
The districts work closely with the United States Department of
Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the
Division of Soil and Water Conservation in the North Carolina Department
of Environment and Natural Resources.
NRCS provides soil conservation specialists to help landowners and
land users. The division
provides financial, technical and administrative support to the districts.
Technical assistance can be provided to the landowner in varying
capacities based on his/her needs.
The district also provides educational services for schools, civic
groups, and any organization. If
you have any questions regarding what our office is capable of, please
