A little about the District…

As a result of the Dust Bowl in the 1930’s, legislation was passed that eventually resulted in the creation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts in Ohio. Washington Soil and Water Conservation  District was organized on August 24, 1945 and was the 41st district to form in the state of Ohio.  Washington SWCD is a local unit of government operating under state law.  General funding is provided by the county commissioners.  The state of Ohio also provides operating funds, based on a percentage of the local contributions to the district.  Five publicly elected supervisors govern the Washington SWCD and each of Ohio’s 88 soil and water conservation districts.  Those supervisors serve without pay in the interest of planning and carrying out the district programs.  The Washington SWCD works with landowners and the government to inventory resources, educate, and develop solutions to a variety of problems.  The technical services this agency provides are free to the public.
