In addition to any local requirements, RCCD utilizes the NH Alteration of Terrain Rules and NH Stormwater Manual as the basis for evaluating minimum soil and design criteria for projects even if they do not require Alteration of Terrain permits. This includes Site Specific Soil Mapping and test pit requirements for the design of infiltration basins. For more information see: http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/aot/index.htm

Mission StatmentOur mission is to conserve and sustain the natural environment for present and future generations by working to make wise land use decisions.
The Role of RCCDThe Rockingham County Conservation District delivers soil and water conservation at the local level. Formed in 1946 as a legal sub-division of the State of New Hampshire and operating under NH State Statute RSA 432:12, the District is directed by a Board of Supervisors, a state appointed governing body made up of five residents of the county. The position of a District Supervisor is a public office and as such the Board of Supervisors has a legal and moral responsibility to the people of the District, its constituents.
