Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District works directly with individual landowners or managers to design and secure financial assistance to implement the best conservation practices suitable for each parcel of land. We take a landscape approach to solving resource management concerns. By looking at the whole picture with individual landowners and managers, we can help turn resource problems into management opportunities that are good for the property owner, good for the land and water, and good for the citizens of Lincoln County and the State of Oregon.
Lincoln SWCD's staff serves the communities and residents of Lincoln County by providing natural resource management assistance such as:
- Informing urban, agricultural and rural landowners about water quality standards and the rationale behind these standards.
- Showing agricultural/rural landowners where water quality limiting conditions occur and assisting with plans and projects to help them implement best management practices that meet water quality standards or the highest water quality attainable.
- Acquiring financial aid (grants) for landowners implementing conservation, restoration and best management practice projects that positively improve water quality and/or wildlife habitat
- Keeping the community informed about the status of non-point source water quality in Lincoln County including the programs and resources available to help landowners solve water quality limiting conditions.
