The Upper Chattahoochee River Soil and Water Conservation District was organized on January 12, 1938 and comprises of Dawson, Forsyth, Habersham, Lumpkin, and White counties. The district is located in Area 2 of Georgia’s conservation districts and has 48 flood control dams.  Each county is represented by two supervisors, one elected to serve a 4-year term and one appointed to serve a 2-year term.  The district provides cost-efficient assistance in the areas of erosion control, conservation, education and outreach, as well as public awareness and planning for citizens and local governments in each county. They also provide scholarships to high school students and sponsorships for students attending the Natural Resources Conservation Workshop held annually at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (Tifton, GA).
