Mission Statement
To promote the wise use and care of natural resources for the benefit of the citizens of Lexington County.

The Function of the Conservation District
To take available technical, financial, and educational resources, whatever their source, and focus or coordinate them so that they meet the needs of the local land user for conservation of soil, water, and related resources.

Objectives

  •  Teach the basic concepts of wise use of our natural resources through education and outreach programs, targeting students, private citizens, units of government, in partnership with organizations involved in land development, land management, or land protection

  • Help developers and property owners plan and design onsite stormwater infiltration practices to better control erosion, slow runoff, protect and improve water quality, and protect lives and property downstream

  • Plan and put on the ground conservation systems that help agricultural producers and others improve both surface water and groundwater quality, improve soil health, and develop or protect wildlife habitat
