Welcome to the Steele County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD).

Since 1946, the Steele County Soil and Water Conservation District has served the community by coordinating technical and financial assistance for local landowners.

The Prime Responsibility of the District is to coordinate assistance on private lands to control erosion, prevent flooding, enhance wildlife, develop recreation, build the economic base, and to manage our soil and water resources.

Our SWCD is a local unit of government established under state law to carry out conservation programs at the local level. Our District works with landowners to help them manage and protect land and water resources on all private lands.
