CENTRAL GEORGIA SOIL & WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT

The Central Georgia Soil and Water Conservation District was organized on February 17, 1940, and was originally comprised of Johnson, Washington, and Wilkinson Counties. The very first District Supervisors were H. Grady Hatcher of Wrightsville, Marvin Gross of Sandersville, E. V. Metts of Sandersville, Morris T. Riner of Meeks, and Thomas A. Brundidge of Irwinton. The Central Georgia District continued to grow within the next 5 years, adding the counties of Twiggs and Bleckley in 1941, Laurens in 1943, and, finally, Dodge in 1945.

Now, the Central Georgia District is thriving with 7 counties and a board with 14 members, including a Chair and a Treasurer. There are 7 elected supervisors each serving 4-year term, and 7 appointed supervisors each serving a 2-year term.

The Central Georgia Soil and Water Conservation District is an agency of the state government, tasked with providing conservation programs to the people of the counties they serve. The Supervisors are locals, elected and appointed to make decisions on conservation, and work with government employees who provide the technical assistance these landowners and managers need. The Central Georgia District Supervisors are dedicated to conserving our land’s natural resources and providing the knowledge necessary to do so.
