Putnam County Soil and Water Conservation District-
Your source for conservation information and technical assistance since 1967.

The Putnam County Soil and Water Conservation District, established in 1967, consists of a five member Board of Directors which includes two Legislators and three community members. In Putnam County the District works in conjunction with the Department of Planning, Development & Public Transportation.
Districts are local governmental subdivisions established under state law to provide technical assistance and programs to residents, landowners and units of government on the conservation, use and development of soil, water and related resources. Districts are resource management agencies, coordinating and implementing resource and environmental programs at the local level in cooperation with federal and state agencies.
The District has a broad focus to consider a range of soil and water resource conservation concerns, including protection of streams, floodplains and wetlands, and management of land disturbing activities to minimize the impact on surface water quality and stormwater runoff.
The office is open from 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, except from mid-June through mid-September, when the hours are 8 am to 4 pm. Please note: Appointments are needed for all technical assistance.
