Ag Pollution Abatement

The Ohio Revised Code authorizes local conservation districts to investigate agricultural pollution complaints and to offer voluntary assistance to agricultural producers for resolving agricultural pollution problems to protect local water resources.

With the assistance of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the District works voluntarily with landowners to abate agricultural pollution by implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs) through conservation planning such as implementing heavy use pads, access roads, spring developments, water systems, livestock grazing systems, and riparian zones.
