Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District (CSWCD)


About Cuyahoga SWCD

Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) was established as a legal entity in the State of Ohio in April 1949. It is one of 88 SWCD's in the State of Ohio, each of which receives funding from its County Commissioners, the State of Ohio, and special grants. It is administered by a five-member, elected board of Cuyahoga County property owners and/or residents. 

Cuyahoga SWCD has forged collaborative partnerships with many municipal, county, governmental agencies, local officials, schools and universities, civic and environmental organizations. Our partner in our daily work is the United State Department of Agriculture-Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), which works with the Cuyahoga SWCD to provide technical assistance for Cuyahoga County residents.

The Cuyahoga SWCD assists communities with the implementation of their storm water management plans that are required by the Ohio EPA (MS4 Permit-OH000003).  That work includes public involvement and public education.
