Hamakua Soil and Water Conservation District

The Soil & Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) are legally constituted self-governing sub-units of the Hawaii state government organized under the 1947, Hawaii Soil and Water Conservation District Law, known as Chapter 180. Hawaii Revised Statutes Chapter 180, as amended, outlines the duties and powers of the SWCDs to administer and conduct soil and water conservation activities within the State of Hawaii. Since 1967, the Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) has provided the SWCDs with funding and administrative support.

Each of the districts are governed by a board of five directors, three elected by agricultural land-users or land-owners and two appointed by the SWCD directors. In order to aid the districts and their directors, associate directors can also be appointed. These SWCD directors and associate directors are volunteers who are concerned about the well-being of our communities and sustainability of our island’s natural resources.
