What Is A Conservation District?


Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) are governed by a seven member volunteer board.


Five supervisor positions, are elected by the land owners of the district, and two members are appointed by the SWCD board.


The board may also appoint non-voting associate members.  


How Are Conservation Districts Funded?

Through a resolution, districts may hold referendums to vote for a mill levy for the property owners of the district. A mill levy is one mill of one third of the property's net taxable value (i.e. property valued at $100,000.00 would be assessed 33.33 per year mill levy). The mill levy is assessed at the county tax assessor's office and provided to the District on a quarterly basis.


Other sources of funding for the Edgewood Soil & Water Conservation include grant programs that the District is able to obtain, cooperative funds with other agencies, and in-kind contributions.
