2021 Soil & Water Conservation Commission members from left to right:  Vice Chairman Wayne Collier, Chris Hogan, Blount Knowles, Chairman John Langdon, Mike Willis, Derek Potter, Chris Hughes

The seven-member Soil & Water Conservation Commission provides oversight, rules and policy for the state soil and water conservation programs. These programs are voluntary and emphasize a locally-led approach to improve and protect water quality and natural resources for a wide range of land uses. The commission is responsible for determining cost share allocations to the state's 96 conservation districts. In return, the local districts utilize these funds to provide financial and technical assistance to landowners to install best management practices on the landscape of North Carolina. The commission also has the responsibility and authority to appoint and remove soil and water conservation district supervisors.
