Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District


Our mission is to clear our water by treating every acre with respect.


Our vision is a conservation partnership that provides leadership for the enhancement of Johnson County's natural resources and quality of life.

We see a county where our agricultural heritage, continued urbanization and production agriculture coexist in an environmentally and economically sustainable way.

We see a balanced landscape where productive land and natural resources are protected, restored and thriving.
