Soil & Water
Conservation District

Our Mission

The diverse scope of expertise and knowledge of the District has rendered the department an asset to the County’s goal to protect and preserve natural resources. The District’s dedication has been established by increased assistance provided to the agricultural community, private landowners and municipalities and by the many partnerships we established with various local, county, state and federal governmental agencies.

2020 Agriculture in the Classroom Grant Program

Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)

The District partners with NRCS to administer the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)—a program which focuses on implementing conservation practices to protect the LI Sole Source Aquifer. Growers within the Peconic Estuary Watershed are eligible for this funding, if they are interested in implementing conservation practices which address local resource concerns. August 21st, 2020 is the deadline cutoff for applying for this funding, and it is quickly approaching.
