Soil Conservation Districts were formed and created by federal law in 1937 as a response to the devastating soil erosion conditions that led to the Dust Bowl. Districts are organized locally, across all 50 states.
Each District exists to promote the conservation, management, and best use of soil, water and other natural resources.
No Two Districts are the Same
In Anne Arundel County, the Soil Conservation District works with two equally essential areas of our local economy: agriculture and urban development.
Farmers rely on the technical expertise of our District’s engineers and field specialists to design and install best management practices on their farms. Producers may also benefit from voluntary conservation programs to further protect natural resources in the County.
AASCD also plays a vital role in the prevention of erosion and sediment during construction activity. Our Urban Division reviews all sediment and erosion control plans for proposed construction projects in Anne Arundel County and the City of Annapolis.
The goal of the Anne Arundel Soil Conservation District is to increase awareness for the programs and services that the District provides. Additionally, the District seeks to develop new relationships and strengthen existing relationships with cooperators and other stakeholders.
