About The RVCD
The Ruby Valley Conservation District has been “Protecting the land and preserving our heritage” since 1939. Specifically, our project work is centered around the health and restoration of the Ruby Watershed, both by assisting impaired streams and by reducing invasive weeds in the watershed. We also aim to educate and engage with our local communities about the importance of conservation.
Apply for 310 Permit
The purpose of the 310 law is to keep rivers and streams in as natural or existing condition as possible, to minimize sedimentation and to recognize beneficial uses. Any individual or corporation proposing construction in a perennial stream must apply for a 310 permit through the conservation district.
