Conservation Districts are local governmental subdivisions established under New York State law to carry out a program for the conservation, use and development of soil, water and related resources. Districts work with landowners, land managers, local government agencies, and other local interests in addressing a broad spectrum of resource concerns: erosion control, flood prevention, water conservation and use, wetlands, ground water, water quality and quantity, nonpoint source pollution, forestland protection, wildlife, recreation, waste water management and community development.  Districts are resource management agencies, coordinating and implementing resource and environmental programs at the local level in cooperation with federal and state agencies.

District involvement includes, but is not limited to, work with landowners, land managers, local government agencies, and other local interests in addressing a broad spectrum of resource concerns:  erosion control, flood prevention, water conservation and use, wetlands, ground water, water quality and quantity, non-point source pollution, forestland protection, wildlife, recreation, waste water management and community development.
