Benton County Soil and Water Conservation District

Missouri’s 114 soil and water conservation districts are organized under state law to carry out Missouri’s soil and water conservation programs. The districts provide information and education, financial incentives, and technical support with design, implementation and maintenance to voluntarily implement soil and water conservation practices that decrease soil erosion and protect water resources.

Soil and water conservation districts are local people solving local problems. In most cases, regular board meetings are held monthly and are open to the public. Most districts also have an informational meeting in which generally the past year's accomplishments are reviewed, outstanding agricultural producers are recognized, and landowners from the county are invited to learn more about the various programs offered by the districts. Contact your district for more information at the number above to get involved with soil and water conservation activities in your area.
