Why become a SWCD Supervisor?

Individuals concerned about water quality and soil erosion in Carlton County should consider filing  for the position. Supervisors play an important role in how our community deals with a wide variety of resource management issues, including wetlands, water quality, soil erosion, lake management, and forestry. Serving as a supervisor is a terrific opportunity for people who want a voice in how we manage our environment. SWCDs are special purpose units of government that manage and direct local conservation programs, such as the state Cost-Share Program, Clean Water Legacy, Impaired Waters, Wetland Conservation, and Forestland Management. 

What is the time commitment?

Supervisors meet monthly to discuss the business of the SWCD, including state grant allocations to landowners, district conservation priorities, coordination with other local units of government and state agencies, and legislative priorities. Committee meetings and outside organization meeting attendance is expected. Supervisors do not receive a salary, however, they do receive compensation for attending meetings and are reimbursed for expenses.
