Explains the methods of conservation of soil and water. Includes requirements and instructions for obtaining the soil and water conservation merit badge. Soil conservation stores more of the runoff from excess rainfall in the reservoir of the soil for subsequent crop use; and this much water is kept out of streams, thereby contributing to flood reduction. Today these techniques of soil and water conservation are being prac- ticed in many countries with much benefit to great numbers of people.

What is water conservation? This is a way of tapping as much water as possible and storing it in tanks or reservoirs. It allows water to sink into the soil increasing soil moisture levels. It ensures a protective cover of vegetation on the soil surface, slowing down the flow of running water and spreads the water over a large area. Conservation of soil and water resources is important for sustainability of agriculture and environment. Soil and water resources are under immense pressure due to ever increasing population. The Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS) is committed to researching and sharing new ideas on conservation.

Soil Conservation and Water Conservation. There are always strong links between measures for soil conservation and measures for water conservation, and this applies equally in semi-arid areas. Many measures are directed primarily to one or the other, but most contain an element of both. Practice Water Conservation Conventional lawns and many ornamental exotic plants require an exorbitant amount of clean water to stay green. Choosing native plants that are adapted to regional rainfall and soil moisture content is a great way to conserve this precious resource. You can also collect water in rain barrels for use in the garden. Soil and water conservation is an integral part of Watershed Management. Although Watershed Management was formerly considered to be nearly synonymous with soil and water conservation, it goes far beyond it today, comprising a variety of further activities that attempt to improve the living conditions of the people living within the respective.
