The Delaware County Conservation District is a subdivision of State Government, but a service of County Government. The Conservation District and the Board were formed in 1970 in compliance with the Conservation District Law Act of May 15, 1945, P.L. 547, No. 217. The District is guided by a board of 8 volunteer directors appointed by County Council from a list of nominations submitted by State approved nominating organizations. A 9th member is a member of County Council. The District evaluates problems, implements programs, and advocates for effective solutions dealing with natural resource protection and conservation.

The board provides oversight for the administration of State delegated programs such as the NPDES Stormwater Construction Permitting Program, The Chapter 105 – Stream Obstruction and Encroachment General Permitting Program, and the Chapter 102 Erosion and Sediment Control Program. The Board also directs staff which serve as the Coordinators for the County’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS-4) Permit.

Our Mission
The mission of the Conservation District is to ensure the wise use of Delaware County’s natural resources and to protect and restore the natural environment through the conservation of its soil, water, and related resources. The Conservation District with the direction and participation of the District Board will support, promote, and execute programs, regulations, and individual efforts, which are consistent with this goal. We will work with individuals, governmental units, and the regulated sector of society to prevent environmental degradation and advocate remediation of past environmental damage. Services will be provided in an expeditious, thorough, and considerate manner. Voluntary compliance will be the preferred method of administering all regulatory programs assigned to us, but we will follow through with the most appropriate enforcement action when violations cannot be resolved cooperatively.
