Sheridan County Conservation District

The function of the Conservation District is to focus and coordinate technical, educational, and financial resources to meet the needs of the local land user. 

The SCCD provides cost-share assistance for livestock and septic system improvements along impaired streams in Sheridan County. Typical cost-share assistance for livestock improvements is between 50% and 80%, depending upon available funding.

The watershed program encompasses the Tongue River, Goose Creek, and Prairie Dog Creek watersheds and includes several activities, with the goal of improving the water resources for Sheridan County. 

Each fall, the SCCD offers low-cost seedling trees and shrubs for conservation purposes. Ordering usually begins in October or November, with seedlings arriving early May.



The SCCD will receive sealed bids for the demolition of the sheet pile diversion dam in the Tongue River at the Acme Power Plant. Bids are due March 2, 2023; a mandatory pre-bid conference is scheduled for February 23.


The snowpack report for March 1 show snow-water conditions remain above median in the Bighorn Mountain snowpack.
