In response to the Great Dust Bowl of 1935, which devastated agriculture in the nation, a board was constituted in 1937.  Now, each state, in the USA, has a Soil and Water Conservation District {SWCD}.  In Georgia, there are approximately 40 districts. Each district has SWCD Supervisors who are elected and appointed state officials. They are mandated to protect and monitor soil, water, erosion, run-off, sediment, and contamination.  Moreover, SWCD Supervisors interact with local governments, such as counties and cities as well as businesses. They equally seek solutions to protect and conserve soil and water.
