Connecticut's Soils Program

The Connecticut NRCS soils program is responsible for providing technical soil services—assisting government agencies and private citizens in understanding and applying soil information for the state. 

Connecticut's NRCS staff continues to improve soil data and products to meet the needs of current and emerging resource concerns for our customers, partners, and cooperators. Soils information provides the foundation to managing and conserving natural resources. The Soil Survey of the State of Connecticut is the most downloaded in the country. Connecticut and Rhode Island both feature subaqueous soil mapping in their respective soil surveys. An effort to accelerate the publishing of seamless subaqueous mapping for all of Connecticut’s nearshore areas is currently underway as part of the Long Island Sound Coastal Zone Soil Survey project. This project will also result in significant updates to existing salt marsh soil survey data.
