Established by the Florida Legislature, the Brevard Soil & Water Conservation District, a governmental subdivision of the State of Florida, was established October 9, 1950 under Florida Statutes 582 by local residents for the purpose of promoting and encouraging the wise use, management and general conservation of the County’s soil, water and related natural resources. The District is committed to preserving and enhancing the quality of life in Brevard County through conservation of its natural resources.

The Brevard Soil & Water Conservation District works closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) creating ways to conserve water, prevent soil erosion, convert irrigation systems and inform the public about conservation problems.

The Brevard Soil and Water Conservation District serves all of Brevard County in the area of the conservation and stewardship of our natural resources.  We are located at the UF/Brevard Extension Service, 3695 Lake Dr., Cocoa, Fl. 32926
