Agricultural Pollution Abatement Standard Operating Procedures

Agricultural Pollution Abatement Standard Operating Procedures define what steps the SWCDs are expected to take when investigating a pollution complaint.

Ohio Revised Code authorizes the director of agriculture and supervisors of a soil and water conservation district (SWCD) to enter into cooperative agreements to obtain compliance with rules of the director pertaining to agricultural pollution abatement. This agreement, or Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), spells out the responsibilities of both parties with respect to program implementation, administration and accounting, evaluation, recording accomplishments, quality control, and maintenance in obtaining compliance with rules and orders of the director pertaining to agricultural pollution abatement (the rules in Ohio Administrative Code 901:13-1).
