The mission of the Duplin Soil and Water Conservation Office is to promote the conservation and improvement of the soil, water, wildlife, forest and other natural resources within our county. The goals of this department are achieved by providing a broad range of technical, educational and sometimes financial assistance to those who are managing property or have an interest in conservation issues. Their staff routinely assists farmers, homeowners, businesses, municipalities and industry. Activities range widely from helping a homeowner solve drainage problems to eliminating erosion on cropland to making conservation presentations for local school groups. The Soil and Water Conservation office also administers several federal and state cost-share and financial incentive programs to encourage land-users to install and maintain various conservation practices on agricultural & wooded land. Their technical staff provides waste utilization planning to swine and poultry producers helping them to maintain compliance with state and federal rules and regulations while protecting the environment. The Soil and Water Conservation Office technicians also oversee the maintenance of the Limestone-Muddy Creek Watershed Improvement project.

The office is currently involved in the update of the Duplin County soil survey. This document, originally published in 1959, provides detailed information about the soils found on every acre within Duplin County.

The Soil and Water Conservation Office actually consists of the Duplin Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD), the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the NC Department of Environment & Natural Resources working together with the County of Duplin. This department operates as a conservation partnership which brings federal, state and local resources together to accomplish their mission. Many of their activities are guided by the Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors which meets monthly to make decisions that impact the priorities and activities of the office staff. The board consists of three publicly elected and two members appointed by the NC Soil and Water Commission.
