We are a subdivision of the State and our purpose is to help people solve their land use problems.
The Columbia SWCD was created in 1946 and has been serving the citizens of Columbia County ever since!
Columbia SWCD is a special district that offers FREE services to the local residents and landowners in Columbia County. Our focus is to help you with land and water issues you may have on your property or simply help you prevent potential issues. We do this through free technical assistance and sometimes cost-share may be available for certain practices.
The SWCD’s of Oregon were created gradually starting in 1939. To date, there are 45 districts serving Oregon. They are considered subdivisions of state government, but function as local units led by a locally elected board of directors.
Columbia SWCD prefers to be Pro-Active rather than Reactive helping landowners implement best management practices to prevent agriculture and water quality issues on their land.
The Columbia SWCD is non-regulatory, and works with willing landowners to prevent problems and solve issues that arise from a variety of land use practices.
