The protection of our environment through the wise use of our natural resources.
Conservation Districts are subdivisions of state government created because of the "dust bowl" of the 1930s. Chartered on October 2, 1942, the Williamsburg Soil and Water Conservation District has a Board of Commissioners composed of five members. They determine the needs and set the priorities for the conservation work in the District. The Commissioners volunteer their time and services. Two members are appointed by the S. C. Department of Natural Resources and three are elected in the general election.
