Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) are local units of government that manage natural resource programs at the local level. Districts work in urban and rural settings with landowners and other units of government to carry out programs for the conservation and enhancement of soil, water and other natural resources, within their district boundaries.
ODA Capacity Grant
The District was awarded an ODA Capacity Grant which provides funding to implement agricultural water quality management area plans and provide technical assistance and outreach to implement the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watershed, and the restoration and protection of native fish and wildlife, and watersheds and water quality.
ODA also provides funding for outreach information and technical assistance to all landowners in the Warrens Creek Focus Area regarding agricultural water quality regulations and opportunities to improve water quality functions through riparian vegetation enhancement projects, to address factors limiting temperature impairment and provide secondary benefits to reduce bacteria, dissolved oxygen, sediment and nutrient levels.
