Spartanburg Soil and Water Conservation District

The Spartanburg Soil and Water Conservation District was formed in 1937 under the provision of the South Carolina Conservation Districts Law. Read more below for additional information about the history of soil and water conservation in Spartanburg County.

The Spartanburg Soil and Water Conservation District is a subdivision of state government under the local control of a five-member Board of Commissioners. Three commissioners are elected in the general election and two are appointed by the SC Department of Natural Resources. These commissioners serve without pay and volunteer their time and expertise toward helping conserve and improve our natural resources.

Commissioners direct the efforts of conservation professionals from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and the conservation districts division of the SC Department of Natural Resources. The conservation district works with these agencies to ensure that staff time is directed to local priorities.
