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.
Natural Resources Program
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.
