The Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District presents
The Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District was created in 1937 by the Georgia General Assembly to protect the state's soil and water resources following the Dust Bowl of the 1930's. Our District encompasses 15 local governments, 1 million citizens, the central economic engine for the Southeastern United States, as well as the headwaters of three major river systems that provide the primary source of fresh water to 10 million people, in three States. We are stewards of the waters shared by citizens, industry, and agriculture.
Day-to-day operations of the District include working closely with the local units of government, citizens, developers, builders and conservation entities to fully implement the Georgia Erosion and Sediment Control Act.
Treating urban stormwater runoff with vegetation, soils, and rainwater harvesting techniques.
Reducing the negative effects of flood events by managing Watershed Dams within the county.
Protecting our surface waters from the negative impacts of construction activities.
