Foster County Weed Board
The Foster County Weed Board was formed to help combat Noxious Weeds throughout Foster County. The board is in charge of applications on all State and County highways along with county FAS roads. They also work with all 18 townships in finding applicators and furnishing chemical to townships. The board also has a Landowner-Assistance-Program (LAP) where we cost share chemical to individual landowners at an 80% county, 20% landowner split. Any questions can be directed to the Weed Officer or to any board member.

Foster County Water Board
The Foster County Water Board manages the surface water within a district's political boundaries and watersheds. Specifically, a water resource district's board should support the state water management policy that upstream districts and landowners who have altered the natural flow of water must share the responsibility of proper water management with downstream landowners.
