Alabama Soils

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Alabama Soils

If you are flying totally blind and need general info, try the web site of USDAs Natural Resources Conservation Service (formerly the Soil Conservation Service). There may be a field report for your area and contact information for the closest field office where you can get some idea of general conditions. http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/TECHNICAL/  This is no substitute for a site specific geotechnical investigation, and if you have expansive soils (entirely possible in Alabama) I would be leery of taking on this assignment without one.
