Our mission is to bring people, government agencies, and private interests together to manage the natural resources and environmental challenges of Delaware County and the state of Ohio.
The Delaware Soil & Water Conservation District, located in Delaware County, Ohio, is an independent subdivision of the state of Ohio and governed by a locally elected Board of Supervisors. The District, associated with the Ohio Department of Agriculture-Division of Soil and Water Conservation, receives funding with local tax dollars that are matched by the state.
