Hudson-Essex-Passaic Conservation District

 The Hudson Essex Passaic Soil Conservation District is a special purpose subdivision of the State serving three counties. HEPSCD is one of 15 soil conservation districts in New Jersey empowered to conserve and manage soil and water resources in cooperation with the State Soil Conservation Committee. We address stormwater, soil erosion and sedimentation issues that result from land disturbance activities (primarily construction). District certification of plans for qualifying projects is a prerequisite to local construction permits. The mission of the New Jersey conservation partnership is to provide leadership in the planning and implementation of natural resource management programs for the agricultural and development communities and the general public through a locally based delivery system in coordination with local, state and federal partners.
