Web Soil Survey

The United States Department of Agriculture maintains a really nice Web Soil Survey website.  You can zoom in on any land area -- right down to an acre or so -- and get detailed soil analysis information.  Analyzing the soil in around the lake area we live in convinced me of the need for a raised bed septic system.  The groundwater level is in the range of 18 to 24 inches, which is not conducive to a functional traditional septic system.
