The primary resource concerns of the Will-South Cook Soil and Water Conservation District include soil erosion and sediment control, water quality, natural resource management, the preservation of prime farmland, and conservation education.

What is the Will/South Cook Soil
and Water Conservation District?

The Will-South Cook Soil and Water Conservation District, organized in 1946, is one of 98 Illinois Soil and Water Conservation Districts empowered by state law to provide help and information about soil, water, and related natural resources. The District encompasses all of Will County and the portion of Cook County that lies south of 22nd Street.

The District works together with the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to help district residents conserve, develop, manage, and wisely use land, water, and related resources. The District and NRCS provide assistance to land managers, county and local governments, organized groups, and local communities; based on a combination of national, state, local, and community needs and concerns.
