Steuben County, Indiana Soil and Water Conservation District
The Steuben County Soil and Water Conservation District was created on December 15, 1948, by a referendum of the people. Their desire was to establish a Conservation District that would be a singular force to ensure that the natural resources of their community would be used wisely and would be there for future generations.
The District is a subdivision of State Government — an independent body formed under, and subject only, to the Indiana Soil and Water Conservation District Law. The boundaries of a Soil and Water Conservation District in Indiana are by County.
By law, the District is responsible for the leadership in the conservation and development of the natural resources in Steuben County. The District carries out this leadership role by analyzing needs and developing a long-range plan aimed at solving problems of soil and water conservation.
The overall concept and real key to the success of a Soil and Water Conservation District is self-government. The District, through its leading role, seeks out technical, educational, and financial assistance from various organizations and agencies of government, and, as a result, becomes the facilitator for land users. It is, however, the individual land users who physically applies conservation and takes care of the natural resources on a voluntary basis.
