    Agriculture

    With more than 480 farms covering 217,000 acres in Washington County, and adding more than $7 million in annual production; agriculture is still a strong part of our community. From the open space agriculture provides to the way of life many of us enjoy, keeping a robust and diverse base is important to us.

    Have Your Well Water Tested for Free!

    Your Local Soil Conservation District is Sponsoring a non-regulatory, free ground water testing program for people who have their own water supply systems (wells, springs).  Water will be tested for bacteria, pesticides, nitrates, and inorganic minerals.  The tests are performed by the State Ground Water Program, administered by the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF).
