Welcome to the Division of Conservation (DOC)
Conservation of natural resources is an important concern for all Kansans. The Division of Conservation, working with the 105 local conservation districts, the 88 organized watershed districts, other special purpose districts, and state and federal entities administer programs to improve water quality, reduce soil erosion, conserve water, reduce flood potential and provide local water supply. The DOC has the responsibility to administer the Conservation Districts Law, the Watershed District Act and other statutes authorizing various programs. The agency budget is financed from the dedicated funding of the Kansas State Water Plan Special Revenue Fund, State General Fund, and fee funds.
