The Fayette Soil & Water Conservation District was organized in 1947 by concerned
landowners intersted in protecting and improving the soil and water resources of the
county. We service county rsidents and landowners, educators, community groups as well
as other public agencies.
A Board of five supervisors, elected by the citizens of Fayette County, donate their time to
meet regularly to conduct the District's business. The supervisor's are elected at the
District's annual meeting to serve a three year term.
The District is a political subdivision of the State of Ohio, Fayette SWCD is assisted by the
Fayette County Commissioners, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and the
Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Pipeline Information There may be additional new underground pipelines coming through Fayette County in
the near future. These pipelines will transport products from the Utica and Marcellus
Shale regions to refineries along the Gulf Cosast. Representatives of the pipeline
companies will contact landowners along the proposed routes asking them to enter into
easement agreements to allow the pipeline(s) to cross their property. Landowners are
encouraged to seek qualified legal representation and technical information before
entering into any easement agreement. Landowners should be aware that depending on
the nature of the pipeline and the material being transported, any particular pipeline
may or may not be under significant government regulation and oversight.
Landowners of property in agricultural production must be particularly concerned
about how their property will be treated during and after pipeline construction. Items
to discuss with the pipeline company representative and to specify in any agreement
should include, but be limited to, topsoil segregation, depth of cover over the pipeline,
subsurface drainage repair, decompaction, and stone removal. The Ohio Department of
Natural Resources Division of Soil and Water Resources has developed a "Pipeline
Standard and Construction Specifications" to assist landowners. This document can be
downloaded here. Additional information can be found on the Division's website by
