For SOIL TESTING to determine an area's suitability for a subsurface wastewater disposal system, AMY JONES, LSE, CSS, can provide both preliminary and final designs to comply with the Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Environmental Health codes.

Very poorly drained soils (left image) and poorly drained soils (middle image) define the HYDRIC SOIL classification. HYDRIC SOILS generally indicate land areas defined as WETLANDS (right image) and unsuitable for development. High intensity mapping of HYDRIC SOILS is a key component of land use planning for cluster and conservation land development projects.

We provide wetland delineation, vernal pool identification, and soil survey services for projects in both MDEP and LURC jurisdictions. Associated permit applications are prepared.

Our office and library/conference room is located in the University town of Orono
