Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District

The Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District was formed in 1947 to provide educational, technical and financial assistance to local landowners and operators, and conserve soil, water and related natural resources within the District’s boundaries. The SWCD has been instrumental in helping farmers design and incorporate sprinkler irrigation into their farm plans.


  • Support high quality and effective projects that engage private landowners in the conservation and enhancement of wildlife and natural resources on their lands.
  • Encourage a complete ecosystem approach that uses sustainable, economic and feasible practices to all land users.
