Established in February 1978, Alonsa Conservation District has always been involved in soil and water management, with its initial establishment being to deal with issues pertaining to agricultural drainage.

The district originally encompassed 2,680 km2. In April 1999, the majority of the RM of Lakeshore joined the existing district, bringing the  new area to the present 3,397 km2.

​In December 2014, ACD completed the Westlake Integrated Watershed Management Plan (WIWMP) which focuses on employing watershed-based decision-making. This provides an opportunity to address water quality, water quantity, community, and habitat issues beyond municipal boundaries, allowing a focus on cumulative impacts of land use practices in the watershed.

Also in 2014, the district added GIS equipment to its assets, allowing the organization to complete ground survey work more efficiently.

In 2016, the district acquired an eBee RTK surveying drone, now allowing the completion or aerial surveying for quick and easy data collection.
