Ann Daisey, community conservationist, explains in this video produced by Dare County how Dare Soil and Water Conservation District works to helps businesses, public and private landowners and municipalities with natural resource management, specifically water quality issues and the services offered.
Districts works with county, state and federal governments and both public and private organizations to protect and enhance water and soil quality.
Soil and water conservation districts and their governing boards of supervisors were formed nationwide based on enabling legislation passed by Congress that grew out of the devastating Dust Bowl and other critical conservation problems of the 1930s.
In a non-regulatory capacity, districts carry out a comprehensive conservation program that protects and improves the county’s natural resources while assisting private landowners in using conservation practices. This partnership addresses serious problems across the state including soil erosion, flood damage and water quality problems.
