Soils data is available on the web – http://websoilsurvey.nrcs.usda.gov/app/HomePage.htm
Click on the big “Green” start button and begin to explore the national soils database. *User Note: When using the Web Soil Survey, as you select criteria, the site stores it in your “shopping cart,” this information is FREE! Please note, the Web Soil Survey does not have an accurate stream layer, therefore, a soils map, from the resource below, will be required for plan submissions and the applicable Sensitive Area Review.
Not completely computer savy or prefer paper, the District has digital and paper copies of the County’s Soil Survey free of charge, stop in or call if you would like a copy!
