About Oneida County Soil & Water Conservation District
We provide leadership in the development, wise use and management of soil, water and related resources in a way that will restore, enhance, protect and maintain their quality and quantity for the benefit of Oneida County and its residents.
The District offers a number of natural resources programs and services, including technical assistance for farmers and landowners, environmental education programs. The District’s programming efforts focus mainly on two programs: the Agricultural Environmental Management Program (AEM), and the Community Environmental Management Program (CEM). The AEM Program is a voluntary program that helps farmers identify potential environmental concerns on their farms and implement solutions. The CEM Program targets community involvement in natural resources planning. Each of these program areas are made up of several individual program components.
