Soil Conservation

Lacombe County is blessed with an abundant and varied landscape of very productive soils. Under the Soil Conservation Act it is an offence for landowners to allow soils to degrade either by wind of water erosion. While wind erosion is not a frequent problem in Lacombe County, water erosion can cause major land degradation.

For more information, contact Environmental and Protective Services. We can assist in planning for shelterbelts and grassed waterways to help alleviate some of these problems.
