What is a Soil and Water Conservation District

Soil & Water Conservation Districts (SWCD), established in 1937 under the Illinois Soil and Water Conservation District Act, are local units of government. The Act gives SWCD's the responsibility to provide technical information to individuals and groups on methods of soil and water conservation, and provide natural resource inventory information on properties slated for zoning changes.  DeKalb County Soil & Water Conservation District was formed on January 6, 1947

 

Who develops the policies of DeKalb County SWCD

DeKalb County Soil and Water Conservation District is a public body made up of citizens concerned with the protection of our natural resources.  It is governed by a five-member board of directors elected by District landowners and residents.  This board of directors, the District staff and the District conservationist assigned by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) develop annual and long range plans that direct the activities of the District and NRCS.

 

Who funds the SWCD

Districts have no taxing authority.  Funding is provided in part by the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA).  Districts offer several programs which supplement IDOA funding.  The additional funding is utilized for operation expenses and education programs.
