The Richland Soil and Water Conservation District develops, implements and assists landowners, government agencies and our partners with a wide range of natural resource conservation programs.

Property owners are faced with many decisions regarding land management, and we can help you meet your goals. We offer assistance with:

  • drainage and erosion concerns
  • flooding
  • pond creation and maintenance
  • forestry management
  • agricultural programs

We also provide Aerial-GPS maps of individual properties.

Don’t forget: if you are moving soil you need to consult with us about getting a stormwater permit so that you are in compliance with the Stormwater Management and Sediment Control Regulations for Richland County.

Let’s work together to keep Richland County green and clean!
