The District has received a grant from
the NJ Department of Agriculture to assist farmers with developing self-certified Animal Waste Management Plans.
We are offering FREE and CONFIDENTIAL help to farmers in Hunterdon, Morris,
Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties. Who needs a self- certified
Animal Waste Management Plan?
Any livestock operation with 8 to 299 animal units (1 animal unit = 1,000 pounds)
· Any farm receiving or applying more than 142 tons of animal waste per year
The District has no enforcement capabilities and is not looking for violations. The mangement practices already in
use on your farm are most likely to be sufficient for your self-certified plan. There is no need to have your plan approved
by the state or county provided you have no more than 299 animal units. Call us for help in reaching compliance with the NJ
Criteria and Standards for Animal Waste Managment. We can answer your questions, provide assistance for plan design and streamline
the process for you!
Please note: Due to limited staff, at times no one
is in the office. Please call 908-852-2579 before you stop by to be certain someone will be there to assist you.
The Warren County Soil Conservation District
is dedicated to the conservation of our natural resources. It was established in 1952 as a special purpose subdivision
of the New Jersey Department of Agriculture. With the
passage of the New Jersey Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Act, Chapter 251, P.L. 1975, the District has been able to reduce
these resource problems which result from urban sprawl. As one of fifteen soil conservation districts in New Jersey, it is
the responsibility of the Warren County Soil Conservation District to review, certify, and enforce soil erosion and sediment
The Warren County Soil Conservation District began a forestry program in 1985. This program
provides technical assistance on a wide variety of forestry matters to private landowners throughout Warren County. The services
available through this program include: forest management plans, timber stand improvement, timber harvesting, and reforestation.
"The mission of the NJ conservation partnership
is to provide leadership in the planning & implementation of natural resourced management programs for the agricultural &
development communities & the general public through a locally based delivery system in coordination with local, state
& federal partners."
