MISSION
To provide services for soil and water conservation, and proper utilization of natural resources, and to promote the continued use of land for agricultural purposes.

The District is committed to preserving and enhancing the quality of life in Lake County through conservation of its natural resources.The Lake Soil & Water Conservation District works closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service creating ways to conserve water, prevent soil erosion, convert irrigation systems and inform the public about conservation problems.
