Soil and Water Conservation


The Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District is a subdivision of State Government and works to promote conservation of our natural resources in Lincoln County. Originally Lincoln County was part of the Lower Catawba District which also included Gaston and Mecklenburg counties. The Lower Catawba District was organized on April 25, 1940. Lincoln County became a single county district on January 9, 1964.

The mission of the Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District is to make available technical, financial, and educational resources and administer programs designed to encourage individual responsibility to conserve, improve, and sustain our soil and water resources for future generations.

Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District offers free technical assistance to landowners in the county with land management, drainage, wetlands, soils information, best management practices and other land resource problems.
