Lake SWCD’s mission is to provide leadership and technical expertise to guide the protection and conservation of the unique soil and water resources of the county. Our office serves residents and communities through our watershed, erosion and sediment control, and education services. 

Our watershed services consist of working with communities to protect and restore our creeks, streams and rivers. This is accomplished through planning, restoration project management, agricultural and natural land preservation. 

Erosion and Sediment Control services help communities stay in compliance with the Phase 2 of the Clean Water Act. It includes plan review and inspection of construction sites for erosion control practices. This ensures that soil (Ohio’s #1 water pollutant) stays on construction sites and out of our streams, creeks, rivers, and Lake Erie.
