Isanti Soil & Water Conservation District


Technical Assistance

Isanti SWCD prides itself on providing excellent service with a smile to all landowners.  We can offer technical support for conservation issues on private or public land.

We are available to answer questions relating to conservation, erosion issues, water quality, nutrient management and trees—if we don’t know the answer we will work hard to find the correct agency or information to meet your needs. 

On-site technical assistance is also available; we can discuss the problem, available options, funding opportunities, and any available programs at the site as schedules allow.

Rain Garden Information

Rain Garden Incentive Program - City of Isanti

The City of Isanti views rain gardens as a powerful tool to manage stormwater, as well as a great way to add aesthetic elements to residential lots. In order to encourage its residents to install rain gardens, the City of Isanti has the Residential Rain Garden Incentive Program. Program participants will be given tools for planning and implementing rain gardens on their property, and approved applicants will be reimbursed 50% of the cost, up to $500, for plants, soil, and other supplies to get the garden started.  Click here for more information.
