Major Program Responsibilities:
The mission of the Conservation District is to ensure the
wise use of Delaware County's natural resources and to protect and restore the
natural environment through the conservation of its soil, water, and related
resources. The Conservation District with the direction and participation of the
District Board will support, promote, and execute programs, regulations, and
individual efforts, which are consistent with this goal. We will work with
individuals, governmental units, and the regulated sector of society to prevent
environmental degradation and advocate remediation of past environmental damage.
Services will be provided in an expeditious, thorough, and considerate manner.
Voluntary compliance will be the preferred method of administering all
regulatory programs assigned to us, but we will follow through with the most
appropriate enforcement action when violations cannot be resolved cooperatively.
