Dallas County Soil and Water Conservation District

The Soil and Water Conservation District of Dallas County was established November, 1969. The purpose of the SWCD involves carrying out programs concerned with the conservation, improvement, and development of natural resources; providing assistance in the planning and application of conservation measures; informing the citizens of the county of the opportunities and programs available; and remaining alert to problems that may arise.

The Board is comprised of four land-owners and one representative from the Extension Service. The Staff includes an NRCS Grassland Specialist, a District Manager, an Info-Ed Coordinator, a District Technician, and a SALT projects manager.

Because Dallas County is mostly pastureland and timberland, our main conservation initiatives and cost share programs address grazing systems, livestock water, cool season and warm season grass establishment and management, nutrient management, and riparian corridor management. Two special projects address some of these concerns in watersheds on the west and north sides of our District.
