Environmental Programs

The West Virginia Department of Agriculture's Environmental Program serves the citizens of West Virginia by encouraging the farm community to continue to produce food and fiber for global distribution while preserving the surrounding natural resources for the generations of the future. A strong program for maintaining high water and air quality standards is achieved through the efforts of trained environmental technicians, laboratory personnel and environmental specialists. Participation in mutual environmental projects with other state agencies, national programs, and producer associations results in the department maintaining an innovative role in agricultural conservation.
