Curious about what kind of soils are on your property? Maybe you want to try out a new crop variety, put in a new septic system, or even subdivide your property and sell the land as house lots.
Before you do that, it may be a good idea to find out what soils are on your property. If the soil has too high of a water table or is mostly rock, there may be soils limitations.
Contact the Rensselaer County Soil & Water Conservation District today to request your Soils Map and a description of all the soils on your property. If interested, please call: (518) 271 1740 ext. 3.
Mapping Resources Available to the Public Online
