Pend Oreille Conservation District (POCD) is one of 45 districts within the state of Washington that covers all of Pend Oreille County with the exception of Incorporated Cities and Towns, excluding Ione, WA.
POCD is a legal subdivision of state government that administers grant funded programs for the productive use and conservation of natural resources. Within its boundaries, POCD provides both landowners/managers and agencies with technical assistance to increase land productivity, enhance water quality and improve other features of our natural resources.
POCD is a non-regulatory entity who works as a liaison between agencies and landowners, and only works with willing/volunteer landowners to help them come into, or stay in, compliance with existing or new environmental laws.
