Connecticut Soils Program

The USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), in cooperation with its partners, has the leadership role for conducting soil surveys on private lands across the country. Connecticut's 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. Here are a few highlights:

  • The Soil Survey of the State of Connecticut is the most downloaded in the country

  • Connecticut and Rhode Island are the only states to have subaqueous soil survey mapping
