A recent inventory in Miami County reveals that approximately 11,500 acres are wooded. These must be managed to their fullest potential.
The Miami County Soil and Water Conservation District considers soil sediment as a result of erosion the greatest pollutant of our waterways. The highest priority will be placed on working with landowners and land users having soil erosion problems.
We provide answers to soil erosion problems, drainage issues and other natural resource problems land users may have. If you are eligible, we can help you find the USDA/Cost share Program that is right for your needs.
Miami County residents depend on groundwater as a source of drinking water, agricultural usage, and for industrial purposes. Septic systems, private and abandoned wells, open ditches, and surface water runoff are possible routes of groundwater contamination.
