The Madison Soil and Water Conservation District was organized in January 1947, for the purpose of conserving and developing its natural resources through conservation best management practices.

The Madison Soil and Water Conservation District is administered by a board of five locally elected supervisors that live within Madison County. The major goals of Madison Soil and Water are to design and implement conservation programs that help conserve our natural resources. These goals are achieved by providing landowners with financial, technical, and educational assistance.


Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, starting September 20th. 

Rural Drainage Report Available

Do you have a ditch or stream running through your property? With ownership comes the responsibility to maintain these resources.  There is a rural drainage report to help landowners who are interested in improving drainage to take a balanced approach between environmental goals and drainage needs.   A farmer can use this report to determine, based on the size and aquatic life of the ditch, the best approach for maintaining the ditch.  It may be a traditional design, one-sided design, over-wide channel, or limited snag and clear.  Also, one should always notify Farm Service Agency for approval prior to improving drainage.  A review is required to ensure that the project does not violate the “Swampbuster” provisions of the 1985 Food Security Act, which discourages draining wetlands by making violators ineligible for farm program benefits.

If you are considering a ditch maintenance project, please read this report and contact our office at 740-852-4004 for further assistance.  If you are a concerned neighbor, talk to the farmer because he or she is an environmentalist, too.  We look forward to assisting you.
