We have implemented measures to mitigate the potential transmission of COVID-19 within the District office. Customers, residents, teachers, etc. may contact District staff via phone or email and we will provide assistance to the best of our ability. If a site visit is needed, staff will schedule those as appropriate and will be following recommended guidelines. There is a gray “drop box” located next to the office door for the delivery of documents (order forms, applications, etc.).

We appreciate your patience and understanding. Thank you.


"Trumbull SWCD will provide leadership in the promotion, enhancement, and protection of the natural resources by providing conservation technical, educational, and financial assistance to meet the needs of the people of our county."

Who We Are

The Soil & Water Conservation District is a political subdivision of the State of Ohio. Trumbull SWCD is a local, state, and federal partnership. The Trumbull district was formed in the late 1940's by a referendum vote by over 70% of the electorate. We receive appropriations from the County, Townships, and Municipalities with the State of Ohio matching the local government funds. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) also provide additional resource assistance.

Five residents of the County are elected in staggered three year terms to serve as volunteer Supervisors. Each month, The Board of  Supervisors hold a public meeting where they receive resident and staff input, approve financial reports/bills to be paid, and they review the programs and events that both volunteers and staff will conduct throughout the year. 

The Trumbull SWCD Board of Supervisors will hold their regular monthly meetings on the fourth (4th) Tuesday of the month at 10:00 am.  Currently, the TSWCD Board of Supervisors is holding meetings by teleconference due to the pandemic.
