The duties, authorities, and responsibilities of the district commissioners are too numerous to be completely summarized in a paragraph.  However, their main objectives are to conduct surveys, investigations, demonstrations, and help to determine research needs relating to soil and water problems; to cooperate with other agencies, governmental or otherwise, and with owners of occupiers of the land; to promote the development of comprehensive programs of planning, application, and maintenance of necessary erosion control and conservation measures; to enter into agreements with individuals, landowners, operators; to promote and establish sound soil and water conservation practices.  Our activities are intended to benefit the people of the district, and also the public in general.  We are primarily responsible for conducting affairs of the East Pottawattamie SWCD.
