Information on Conservation District Services and the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Hello Conservation Customers,

The Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District (district) continues to monitor the fast-changing situation associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  Our goal is to provide information and services in a manner that protects the safety and health of district employees, our clients, and the community we serve.  With the current uncertainty and increasing level of concern, the way we conduct business and provide service is changing.

To comply with the various state and federal guidelines relating to meetings and gatherings for groups, and to ensure safety of district staff and clients, the office is temporarily closed to general public access.   We are advising clients to contact the district by telephone or email if they have questions or need assistance.  The district will post updates on its website as new information becomes available.
