      the passage of the Soil Conservation Act, which established the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) within the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The SCS was charged with developing a program to conserve and enhance the nation’s soil and water resources. At first, it was assumed the federal government could manage the whole program. The scope of the handbook is necessarily limited to phases of en- gineering which pertain directly to the program of the Soil Conservation Service. Therefore, emphasis is given to problems involving the use, conservation, and disposal of water, and the design and use of structures most commonly used for water .

      amount of water seeping into the soil, reducing the speed and amount of water running off. Erosion is prevented by keeping enough vegetation to protect the soil surface and binds the soil together and maintains soil structure. What is water conservation? This is a way of tapping as much water as possible and storing it in tanks or reservoirs. Description: Advances in Soil and Water Conservation provides an in-depth, scholarly treatment of the most important developments and influences shaping soil and water conservation in the last 50 years. The book addresses the technological developments of erosion processes, methods for their control, policy and social forces shaping the.

      Erosion occurs when wind and water carry away surface soil. Certain activities such as road construction and homebuilding, which disturb the land, increase the probability of erosion. In these cases, erosion and sediment control guidelines are followed to conserve nearby natural resources. Archived Publications.
