About Us


Noble Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) was organized in July 1942. It was the 6th district to be organized in Ohio. The district is a legal sub – division of the state and state law mandates that the district be governed by  a board of supervisors (who serves without pay) consisting of 5 members. 

These members are elected for a three year term at our annual meeting held in the fall. Any resident or landowner in Noble County are eligible to participate in the election. Regular meetings are opened to the public and held the second Wednesday of every month.
