County Soil Surveys and Supplements
Soil Survey Supplements - are county soil survey text and tables that have been updated to include new mapping units, new text, and new tables addressing new land use concerns. Soil survey supplements do not include updated maps. It should be noted that any soil survey is only as current as its publication date.
To download a pdf file of a survey click the desired county on the map below.
Note: The pdf file sizes range from 24 megabytes to as small as 2 megabytes,
so your download times will vary.
Interim Soil Surveys – are preliminary text and tables published for county Soil Survey update projects. These are produced so that users will have up-to-date information while waiting for the final edition of the soil survey to be released. Soil survey text gives all the background information on soil map units, the county, and how the survey was made.
It is recommended to use only the text included in the soil surveys. Official up-to-date tables and soil maps should be viewed or downloaded at the Soil Data Mart or via the Web Soil Survey. At the Soil Data Mart select the "generate reports" button to then select desired tables.
Soil survey tables display many of the characteristics of the soil map units:
- septic site suitability,
- source of construction materials,
- wildlife habitat,
- soil physical properties,
- extent of soils, and
- engineering properties
- and more!
