The CCD is mandated by Wyoming Statute 18-5-306, to give recommendations on all proposed subdivisions. Recommendations are based on soil types found on the property and recommendations are regarding soil suitability, erosion control, sedimentation and flooding problems. The CCD does not have the authority to approve or disapprove a subdivision. Completed subdivision soil reviews are provided to the requester and Park County Planning and Zoning.
If you need a Subdivision Soil Review, please download, print and fill out your request form. Mail the completed form to our office or drop it off in person along with a check for $50.00 (we currently only accept checks) made payable to:
The CCD offers soil testing kits for landowners. Stop by the office to pick up a kit or have us come out to help you collect your soil sample.
You can also contact the CSU Soil Testing Lab to get your own kit by clicking below.

The CCD is selling conservation grade seedling trees. The purpose of this program is to offer seedling trees and shrubs, technical assistance, and information to encourage the establishment of conservation plantings. Conservation plantings include windbreaks, living snow fences, shelterbelts, erosion control, wildlife habitat and more!
If you are interested in ordering seedling trees, please look at our available trees list and fill out the order form. Please make all checks payable to the Cody Conservation District. Order forms and payments must be received prior to us ordering the seedling trees. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
The CCD hopes to offer multiple cost assistance programs in the future. Depending on funding, we hope to provide cost sharing options for septic tank remediation, rural well water quality testing, range and water improvements, cover crops, and habitat improvement projects.
Starting Fall 2021 the CCD will be offering rural well testing to test the quality of drinking water found in your well! This program will pay for 50% of the cost associated with testing. Contact us if you are interested in learning more about this program!
The CCD values connecting and communicating with the community through outreach. The CCD works to provide educational opportunities by participating in public events, hosting classes and workshops, and disseminating educational materials. If you are interested in learning more about District operations or attending an outreach event, check out our calendar below for upcoming public events, classes, and workshops.
Stay up to date on what the CCD has been up to by following us on Facebook and Instagram and reviewing our newsletters (coming soon).
In 2013, the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved the document E. coli Total Maximum Daily Loads for the Shoshone River Watershed for waters that had been identified as being impaired for E. coli bacteria in the Shoshone River Watershed. The CCD has recently resumed monitoring efforts for E. coli. on Dry Gulch, a waterbody that had been listed in the document as being impaired to determine whether it continues to pose a human health risk. The district is also collecting data on Homesteader/Dry Creek, which is not currently listed but is of interest to the WDEQ.
With community support, the CCD will expand our monitoring efforts to evaluate bacteria loading in other parts of the watershed to protect human health and other designated water uses.
