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.

Cover Crop Survey

The District created a survey for Suffolk County agriculture producers to get their input on their knowledge of, and experiences with cover crops and cover cropping systems in day-to-day operations. The survey is available both virtually and physically for interested participants. Please complete this survey by July 1st, 2021
