Description: The local Soil and Water Conservation Districts, which are entities of State government, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), a Federal agency, have been "joined at the hip" since 1937. In that year, Congress established the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) and mandated that this new agency would work directly with local Soil Conservation Districts to protect the resource base on farmsand ranches throughout the Nation. The old SCS has since become the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and most Soil Conservation Districts have included "water" in their names.
