Natural Resources

The Natural Resources Program plans for the preservation, management, and protection of natural resources in Scott County.

There are four water management jurisdictions in the County:

County staff take an active role in administering the VRWJPO and the Scott WMO. (See Map of Watershed Management Jurisdictions)

Scott County is responsible for the protection of its lakes, streams, wetlands, and groundwater through implementation of the Scott County Water Resources Plan adopted May 2006.

The Natural Resources Program also works closely with other County staff and program partners, including the Scott Soil and Water Conservation District to manage soil and water resources within the County including open space, wetlands, erosion control, and natural areas. Natural Resources Program staff review development plans for compliance with erosion, stormwater management and flooding ordinances of the County.
