- What We Do
Whenever earth and/or soil are moved in Washington County, to build a home, construct a road, grade a site, harvest trees, as well as, when sensitive areas are threatened, the Washington County Soil Conservation District (WCSCD) is involved. Our primary role is to act as the review and approval authority for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control plans. We have also, in recent years, obtained the Pre-Construction Meetings, Interim Water Quality Inspections, and Final Site Closeout Reviews from the Maryland Department of the Environment working as a contractor.
- We have recently developed a Strategic Plan, for the District in entirety, and are revising program structure throughout the office. We will be reviewing Urban Program processes, look at efficiencies, etc. Our first change is to add the Forest Conservation Program (Washington County Soil Conservation District’s involvement/side of things) operations under the Urban Program within the District’s Urban Division.
