Soil and Water Conservation Districts

Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) are subdivisions of State Government, but they are operated by private citizens. There are sixteen SWCDs in Maine which generally correspond to county boundaries, although there are a few exceptions (see the map below and the list that follows). SWCDs establish local priorities for conservation efforts. Emphasis is on agriculture and forestry although urban development is a priority in some districts. SWCDs hold workshops, set up demonstrations, offer educational programs, review development plans, and set priorities for one-on-one technical assistance, at the request of land occupiers.
