Anne Arundel SCD
The responsibilities of the Anne Arundel Soil Conservation District are divided equally between urban and agricultural interests. The district's agricultural programs are geared toward developing and implementing Soil Conservation and Water Quality Plans to protect the environment. These plans include best management practices (BMPs) to protect water quality, reduce soil erosion and control nutrients and pesticides. On the urban front, the district reviews and approves erosion and sediment control plans for developers and various county departments, state projects in the Severn River watershed and the City of Annapolis. Approvals for sand and gravel operations and reclamation facilities also fall under the district's purview.  In addition, the district works in cooperation with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources on shore erosion control matters, small pond approvals and nontidal wetlands issues.
