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.
