The Sussex Conservation District was formed in 1944 when the county was mostly agricultural.  Since then, portions of Sussex County have gradually evolved into a more urban setting.  Development has progressed over the eastern half of the county and is working west.  Once thriving farmland has been developed into commercial and residential subdivisions.  To meet the challenges of the agricultural to urban lifestyles, the District has three programs--Agricultural Conservation, Heavy Equipment and Sediment & Stormwater.  The programs serve the agricultural community and the urban and suburban landowners of Sussex County.
