Alexander Soil and Water Conservation District

What does the Alexander Soil & Water Conservation District do?

Soil & Water Conservation Districts are political subdivisions of state government. There are 96 of them in North Carolina, covering the state's 100 counties. The Alexander County Soil & Water District develops farm conservation plans, identifies and plans local resource conservation work and coordinates the conservation efforts of federal and state agencies within the district.

The districts work closely with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Division of Soil and Water Conservation in the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources. NRCS provides district conservationists and engineers to provide technical assistance with farm conservation plans and design and implementation of best management practices. The division provides financial, technical and administrative support to the districts. Technical assistance can be provided to the landowner in varying capacities based on his/her needs.

The district also provides educational services for schools, civic groups, and any organization. If you have any questions regarding what our office is capable of, please call us at: (828) 632-0638.
