The Monroe Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) was established in 1943; the ninth district to form in the state of Ohio.
The District is governed by an elected Board of Supervisors consisting of 5 members serving staggered 3-year terms.
The Board meets the third Monday of each month to conduct business.
The purpose of the SWCD is to encourage landowners and land users to utilize the land in the most beneficial manner.
Because of the passage of an operating levy in 2000 and renewals in 2004 and 2009, we remain available to landowners and residents of the county as a resource for various technical and educational services.
