Carroll Soil Conservation District

The Carroll Soil Conservation District serves all of Carroll County - an area encompassing roughly 300,000 acres with comprehensive soil and water conservation services. Approximately 30,000 acres of county land are committed to residential development, while 173,000 acres are classified as agricultural. Carroll County is one of the leading agricultural regions in Maryland. Large numbers of livestock are maintained in the district, including poultry, dairy and beef cattle, horses, hogs and sheep.

The cumulative impact of agricultural runoff, urban erosion and increased population has raised concerns about water quality in the county. To address these concerns, the district provides technical assistance to the agricultural community, reviews and approves erosion and sediment control plans for construction activities, and promotes the use of best management practices (BMPs) to protect water quality.
