    Erie Soil and Water Conservation District is committed to the protection, preservation and restoration of natural resources by providing education, funding opportunities and technical assistance to all land users.

    The Erie Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) became the 84th District in Ohio in 1953, established for the purpose of protecting, preserving, and restoring the natural resources in our area. The District was organized under the State of Ohio, Revised Code 1515, governed by a board of five supervisors, elected by the landowners of Erie County, with each supervisor serving a three-year term.

    Erie County, one of eight coastal counties in the State of Ohio, is comprised of approximately 169,000 acres. The main objectives of the District are to minimize or prevent soil erosion, improve the water quality of our rivers, lakes, streams and groundwater supply, and restore or preserve valuable wildlife habitat. This is accomplished through the various programs that promote the wise use of agricultural and urbanizing lands.
