logo no captionTri-County/City SWCD has served the Commonwealth of Virginia Counties of King George, Spotsylvania, Stafford since 1944 and the City of Fredericksburg since 1984. We are a local political subdivision of the Commonwealth, focusing on natural resource problems and solutions. Like other conservation districts, Tri-County/City SWCD is self-governed and non-profit and establishes priorities, sets policy, and administers programs to conserve soil and water resources.
Tri-County/City SWCD is not a regulatory agency. Instead, the agency provides technical assistance, information, educational programs, volunteer opportunities, and newsletters to citizens on many aspects of water quality, nonpoint source pollution, and stream health.
