Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) soil mapping crew have been working in Uinta County to complete a soil survey of the entire county. Working towards a completed soil survey in Uinta County has been a cooperative effort between the Uinta County Conservation District, the Uinta County Commission and the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS).
The checker board land pattern in Uinta County has made soil mapping difficult because of the alternate sections of private and public lands. With funding from UCCD, the Uinta County Commission, and NRCS, mapping could only be completed on private lands. However, alternative funding was secured to complete mapping on BLM grounds in Uinta County.
There has been a push to accelerate soil mapping in Wyoming over the last several years. A soil survey can provide valuable information to those who work with the land. It includes descriptions of each type of soil in the county as well as interpretations of the soils characteristics and potential for community planning, agricultural land management, engineering and wildlife management.
Grant Redden, Program Assistant is working with the BYU Soils Lab if you are looking at a more in depth soil test. Please bring soil samples into UCCD and we can assist you. Please contact us at (307) 787-3070 for more information or send us an email.
