Soils Information

Soil Maps delineating Soils Types’ boundaries and giving soils descriptions for land use are available through our Department covering Suffolk County in its entirety. The Suffolk County Soil Survey is a book that was produced by the Soil Conservation Service {now the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)} in 1975. This information is also now available (updated) online.


Soil Erosion and Drainage

Any Landowner may request an Evaluation and Recommendations to reduce or alleviate soil erosion, sedimentation, flooding, and drainage issues for their property. This includes; gullying, wet spots, sunken areas etc.


Soil Health Initiative Programs

The District currently has two joint Soil Health Initiative Programs aimed to help growers improve the quality of their soil health on their property by implementing soil health BMPs. There is a Soil Health Testing Program, which follows the Cornell University Comprehensive Assessment of Soil Health (CASH) Test and focuses on the physical attributes of the soil for analysis. There is also the Soil Health Equipment Loan Program (HELP), which is an equipment loan program for growers to utilize for soil health conservation practices. Please reach out for more information if you are interested in these programs.
