Waupaca County Land and Water Conservation Department

The Waupaca County Land and Water Conservation Department was established in 1982. The committee of jurisdiction is a seven-member Land and Water Conservation Committee. There are six Waupaca County Board members and one USDA-FSA County Committee member. The Department’s mission is to help develop land use policies, and provide technical assistance to landowners to reduce sources of non-point pollution. The department administers the Water Quality Program, along with various Federal, State and County Natural Resource Programs. 


Effective March 19, the Land & Water Conservation Dept. Office will be closed to the public.

As a proactive and responsible measure to COVID-19, Waupaca County Land & Water Conservation Department is encouraging the community to practice the social distancing guidelines as recommended by the Waupaca County Health Department, Waupaca County Emergency Management Department, Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  We urge citizens to postpone in-person visits to the courthouse until further notice.  For any business with the county, please phone ahead as many inquiries can be resolved via phone and e-mail.

Additionally, you may experience some delays in communication from our office as we work to ensure and adapt staffing to meet the functional needs of our office.  We appreciate your patience and support during this time.

This situation is dynamic and rapidly evolving.  For the most up to date and reliable information regarding COVID-19 in Waupaca County, please visit https://www.co.waupaca.wi.us/departments/health_and_human_services/covid-19.php
