The Lewis County Soil and Water Conservation District is not currently accepting water samples due to the Covid-19 restrictions on building entry. We can provide typical water sample bottles if we are notified ahead of time. Bottles can be picked up in the parking lot by appointment only. Masks and other social distancing protocols are required. Once water sample bottles have been filled, customers must follow the chain of custody protocols and take samples to Converse Labs in Watertown, NY. For specific questions you can contact the laboratory at (315)788-8388.

Our goal is to assist our local farmers and citizens in protecting and enhancing our natural resources and ecology. We are proud to be playing our part in protecting natural resources in the Tug Hill Plateau, Adirondacks and the Black River Valley of Lewis County.
We look forward to seeing a healthier and stronger Upstate, as well as a productive economy brought about by the commitment we have to see our local soil and water protected and enhanced.
So if you are looking for a way to get involved in our efforts or would like to see how we can help you, we invite you to dig a little deeper. You'll be surprised at what you might learn.
