Canyon Soil Conservation District
Organized in 1951, the Canyon Soil Conservation District focused on farm-related soil and water problems. Farmers received help leveling their land, lining ditches, installing irrigation pipelines, developing conservation cropping systems and how to utilize crop residues for better soil and water conservation. Irrigation companies received help upgrading their canals and diversions along the Boise River.
The Canyon Soil Conservation District (CSCD) is one of 50
Conservation Districts in Idaho. It includes all of Canyon County in southwest Idaho.
Idaho’s Soil and Water Conservation Districts are political
subdivisions of state government but are not state agencies.
Conservation Districts are charged with carrying out programs for the
conservation, use and development of soil, water, and other natural
resources within their boundaries.
