Soil and Water Conservation
The Peach County Soil and Water Conservation District works with natural resources. Technical assistance is delivered through a Board of Supervisors charged by state law with meeting local natural resource and conservation needs and priorities.
Technical support is provided by the United States Department of Agriculture's Natural Resource Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS) through a memorandum of understanding. The public is encouraged to use assistance provided by the District.
Consultative assistance is provided in dealing with soil and water problems. Service is available to private individuals, contractors, public officials, clubs and groups or agencies needing technical guidance in solving soil and water conservation problems.
Technical assistance is provided to land users who need more detailed help in solving conservation problems. Examples of technical assistance include soil survey interpretation and conservation plans as well as design and construction supervision of practices.
Technical assistance is also provided to county and municipal governments, area planning and development commissions, authorities, zoning boards, institutional boards, health departments and others. It normally includes soils interpretations and inventory data on agricultural and nonagricultural land.
USDA Service Centers are designed to be a single location where customers can access the services provided by the Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Rural Development agencies.
