County Land and Water Conservation

County Land and Water Conservation Departments (LCDs) were created to provide local leadership in carrying out programs that conserve Wisconsin's land and water resources. Working closely with the Land and Water Conservation Committees (LCCs), they are the primary local delivery system of natural resource programs.

[Jump to LCC/LCD directory]

Their connection to county government gives them an understanding of local land and water resource problems and solutions. That's why they're an excellent source for conservation assistance and planning. They provide educational, technical and conservation planning assistance to help communities control rural and urban soil erosion; protect lakes, streams and groundwater; and manage woodlots, forests and wildlife.

To read more about County LCD acheivements, please see the 2016 Wisconsin Land and Water Annual Progress Report.

Each county in the state is required to have a Land and Water Resource Management (LWRM) Plan approved by the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP).  For additional information, please see DATCP's LWRM web page.
