County buildings are open to the public, but we have placed our drop box in-between the front entrance outer and inner doors to avoid the need to sign in with the guard if you are just dropping off or picking up plans.  

OUR MISSION

In agriculture, the District emphasizes the importance of soil conservation and water quality, striving to have voluntary soil and water conservation plans for all working farms.  These plans help farmers optimize productivity while safeguarding their surroundings against the potential impact of poor land management.  Farmers are advised in areas that include preventing fertilizers and pesticides from draining into nearby tributaries through the use of innovative methods like cover crops and shoreline buffers.  The plans also aid farmers with issues related to conservation crop rotation and residue management.

In the area of urban development, the AASCD reviews all sediment and erosion control plans for pending construction projects in Anne Arundel County to ensure that developers take the necessary steps to manage runoff during construction to control soil erosion.
