Logan Soil and Water Conservation District Technician Steve Searson addressed the Logan County Township Association during its Spring meeting at the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Thursday evening.
Searson spoke about the pollution abatement program put together by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The program deals with agricultural pollution. He said that the soil and water district is the group townships should contact if they suspect pollution. The district investigates the claims and will work with landowners to try and resolve any issues. The main focus of the group is to protect the wildlife and natural resources of the county.
Searson also noted that the soil and water district can help property owners determine if their home or soon to be constructed building is in a flood plain or drain way. He said that if property owners consult with the district prior to purchasing or building it could help them save money in the future by preventing any water issues before they happen.

Township Association President Don Bradley comments on the meeting.
The Logan County Township Association will meet again on July 20th at 6:30 pm at the Belle Center Shelter House in Richland Township.
