Henricopolis Soil and Water Conservation District

Our Mission: To educate and guide Henrico citizens in the sustainable use of our natural resources.

Our Vision: Clean Waters, Productive Soils.

Conserving Our Natural Resources Henricopolis Soil and Water Conservation District is a subdivision of state government responsible under state law for natural resource conservation. We are one of 47 Soil and Water Conservation Districts serving localities throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Its boundaries are those of Henrico County. The District is governed by a board of directors formed of local citizens who serve without pay. The District works hand-in-hand with state, federal, and county agencies and departments, other conservation organizations, schools, and other community partners to achieve our conservation objectives.

Education and Outreach The District offers many educational programs which target a variety of audiences. Henricopolis has placed increasing emphasis on classroom education programs based on the VA Standards of Learning. Resources include activities, games, models, videos, skits, and more. The District also has a variety of resources available to teachers for use in the classroom.

Technical Assistance District staff is available to assist homeowners and help them assess the environmental impact of various site-specific problems such as soil erosion, storm-water runoff, or drainage issues.

Other Resources The District maintains and updates a large quantity of conservation reference materials, technical sheets, and brochures in the District office. The USDA Soil Survey of Henrico County is available for review in the District office. Various maps pertaining to topography, wetland, and hydrologic information as well as historic aerial photographs are also available for review in the District office. These resources are available to both the public and private sector for review.
