Ocean County SCD

The Ocean County Soil Conservation District (OCSCD) is one of fifteen districts in New Jersey established under Chapter 24, Title 4 of the revised statutes of 1937.  This legislation declared the policy of the Legislature through the State Soil Conservation Committee and local soil conservation districts, and provides for conservation of soil and water resources and the control and prevention of soil erosion in New Jersey. Local districts are responsible for conservation programs within their geographic areas as covered by the political boundaries of their respective counties.  A Board of Supervisors, five local residents who are recommended by a local nominating committee and appointed by the State Soil Conservation Committee, administers each district.

OCSCD’s involvement in conservation has expanded over the years, keeping pace with the continuing development and growth of Ocean County.  Its mission is now multi-faceted, including the enforcement of Chapter 251, education and public outreach programs, and the research and development of techniques to improve soil health and water quality.
